Hello, Anon! Thank you for posting.

Inflammation of the sinuses can decrease the ability of mucus to drain, increasing pressure within the sinuses, which can cause congestion and pain (headache, facial tenderness, swelling). Common causes of inflammation include allergies, infections, or colds. A viral infection will run its course, but a bacterial infection would be treated with antibiotics. A visit to the doctor can tell you what is going on if you are not feeling better. How long have you been feeling ill?

I hope you feel better soon.
