Sinus pressure: When ther e is local pain usually it is related to structures cause pain underneath. The pain felt while shaking head is suggestive of sinus collection with inflammation. Sinus headache is helped with nac which breaks down mucus and bromalein which helps with pain - check for dust or mold at home and use air purifier to help prevent future episodes.
