Time to see a doctor: or go to the Urgent Care Center. You've asked the same question at least 4 times and the answer is the same. You must be seen in person, and be worked up your unilateral headache, face pain, and rhinorrhea if it is causing you pain and worry and anxiety. Better to make sure it is benign, and nothing to worry about. This will bring you greater peace of mind and make you feel better soon.Good luck!

That's very likely! Use cool air humidifier or warm moist compressed or warm hot showers to get the sinus to start draining. Ask your doctor about using a nasal decongestant spray, as there are contraindications to using it, and it can only be used for max 3 days, or you'll get rebound congestion.
