Interesting thought: It would be unlikely for water to be trapped in your sinuses, as they are designed to drain mucus on a daily basis. I wonder how this situation occurred. Were you irrigating your nose or swimming? Work on decongesting your nose and sinuses. Use afrin or neosynephrine nasal decongestant spray for 3 days, no more than 5; take sudafed 12 hour tablets for a few days and this will drain them fast.
