When my allergies and sinus back-ups gang up on me I try the hot/cold approach. I get a hand towel and soak it with very hot water and place it over the offending side of my face until it starts to cool. Then I repeat the process with a bag of frozen peas. The cycle usually lasts about
25 minutes with hot/cold compresses in place for 5 - 7 minute intervals. This must do something to the gunk that causes the pressure because at the end of my hot/cold packs I usually get a total 'gush' of gunk flowing out of my head and almost instant pain relief. Worth a try for anyone with this pressure thing and also is great if you have thyroid or high blood pressure and are limited on which decongestants you can use. No prescript
