What can the hospital or ER do for me for severe sinus problems?

Sinus infections are not an emergency. Go to your primary care doctor or a walk in clinic.

Keep you hydrated, monitor your fluids/nutrients and treat any deficiency.
If the sinuses are infected, they'd be treated immediately with the appropriate treatment.
But if the problem is allergies, you'll just be told to go to an allergist or to your GP. And mail you a $400 bill for that conclusion.
Urgent care is a better bet if it's an emergency.

A sinus infection is not really a medical emergency. You go to the ER for emergent issues. For a sinus infection (even a severe one) you should see your primary care provider or perhaps an urgent care center. Please do not waste the ER resources.

ER or hospitals could probably do nothing. They could refer you to a specialist but so could your own doctor.
