I don't take Sudafed because it makes me feel jittery. What else can I try OTC or home remedy to relieve sinus congestion/achiness/ pressure?

You can try: oral antihistamines such as Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) Chlortrimeton, Zyrtec, Claritin, Allegra, etc, or nasal spray such as Afrin or neosynephrine, Also use a vaporizer to increase humidity. Avoid dehydration by taking plenty of fluids. If these don't work, it is time to see a doctor.
