Chronic Sinusitis +Streptococcus group A infection can cause my CFS?

Couldn't find any information on this, so I will tell why I'm optimistic that this is the cause of my CFS, and hopefully someone can relate or give helpful resource to study this further...
My background:
I developed chronic maxillary sinusitis after sleeping under air conditioner in a hotel when I was 7, had lots of green mucus until I was around 8-9, then it drifted away a bit, but still had some white mucus coming out every 20 mins in active hours, and around 16 y/o (2016) it got more frequent, I think. At the same time my CFS started to manifest with neurological problems like concentration fatigue, heightened anxiety, and similar things. Starting January 2017 I started feeling general fatigue and tiredness unrelieved by sleep, my activity level would be 5-6 from there on forward. In 2018 I discovered subfebrility (temperature elevated to 37.4°C during day), mild tachycardia and frequent urination (last two I think has to do with sympathetic nervous system dysfunction). These remain to this day.

I'm from Ukraine, and there is no restriction on seeing Drs, so you can see as many as you want, I did some examination and lots of tests, one Dr found selective deficit of NKT-cells(CD3 +, CD56 +), chronically reactivated HHV7 + TTV infection and streptococcus infection with PANDAS (that's group A streptococcus).
I think that Dr used this Antihyaluronidase test to diagnose PANDAS dsgdhgjhjk.PNG )
He wants to use ceftriaxone 1milion intravenously 10-14 days, then cefuroxime 500mg x2 daily 16-20 days to threat Streptococcus. I will discuss this with other docs.

Ok, so why do I think Sinusitis is the cause of my CFS?
I have treated my sinusitis with protocol below, and just after 3 days of starting I noticed big improvement in energy, unfortunately in only lasted 7 days, and it didn't improve my sympathetic nervous system function (I'm reading the Perrin technique book, and it says there that sympathetic nervous system is compromised by immune system deficit long before CFS develops, witch I think applies to me because infection that caused sinusitis probably stressed immune system all these years. Can Streptococcus group A do this?)
Take the onion juice, dark soap (household) - grind, add oil, alcohol, milk, honey. Put everything in one container. Make a "water bath" and wait for the soap to melt. When the mixture has cooled, it can be applied. Take a cotton swab and dip it into the ointment. Then three times a day, insert into each nostril for 15 minutes. This procedure should be done for three weeks
Very curious to hear your opinion :)

I think that any immune system activation event has the potential to trigger ME. I also believe that a chronic infection can worsen ME symptoms, as well as the symptoms of the infection. Treating the chronic infection could reduce the extra symptoms, but probably won't cure ME, leaving the patient with some level of ME symptoms.

ME has the annoying feature of having treatments that work for a short period, and then stop working and never work again. We don't know why it works this way, it just does.

Are you familiar with Perrin’s explanation of ME? he has studies validading his approach, here’s 6 part lecture.
Basically, it’s not the infection itself, but toxins produced by stress on immune system that have problem exiting our bodies, this build up of toxins cause problems, at least that’s true for most patience, I think the key in my case is to eliminate the active infection, that has lead to ME, then with Perrin technique I can drain away the toxins, and everything should work properly, witch will lead to remission. I will find out if this is the case in next 6 mounts.
I don’t know how to explain why I had partial 7 day remission if it’s toxins that are the cause, because they probably on the same level at that time. I will try it again and see if it works thou)

No, I haven't heard of Perrin's explanation of ME before. Do any of his explanations say just what the toxins are, and why no one has yet been able to detect them and thus verify his theory?

I think I'll await evidence from controlled studies.

He explains what he calls "toxins" in his book. There were studies es early as 90s, in 2017 was one that made into popular medical magazines, I’m too lazy to look up names, but here’s good thread that critically discusses his technique
These "toxins" are in the brain, they travel via lymphatic system, everyone has them, but in ME they poorly travel from the brain away, witch causes bild up of toxins. He validated this in his 2017 study. Details in the lecture I linked
