Two possibilities come to mind with these somewhat vague symptoms. One is a paranasal sinusitis and the other is a manifestation of anxiety or tension. If symptoms persist, testing would be a CT scan of the paranasal sinuses and a consultation with a neurologist if no sinus pathology is found. Stress management therapy is helpful in relieving anxiety and tension if it's the problem.
