Sinusitis: Sounds like you have some fluid in your sinuses and it's inflamed. Now we need to figure out if it's viral, bacterial, allergic or rarely fungal.

Pressure: Sinus pain often occurs because there is inflammation that lead to swelling of the nasal anatomy. Often there is my enough space for this swelling and things touch when they shouldn't. This leads to pain and pressure. When you lean over the sinus become more engorged with blood and that causes further swelling and this worsening pain/pressure.

Get rid of...: Antibiotics may need to be used, but you need regular sinus x-rays to see if you do have sinusitis. It could be allergic, or infectious, or both. Decongestants will help, as will mucolytic agents. Aleve (naproxen) should ehlp, and a brief stint on Prednisone may be in order! see your doctor!

"Sinus ": No, there are a number of over the counter meds that you could try. You could use an antihistamine if your rpredominant symptom is sneezing and. Drainage if nasal congestion is the biggest problem, a decongestant like sudafed can be used. Decongestants will run up the blood pressure though. Pain relievers can be used for headache only.

Root cause ?: That is difficult to answer without much more information. Sinus pain is a very generic term. This implies pain or pressure in the face. There could be a multitude of causes. My advice is that you need to see your primary care doctor, an ENT specialist, and possibly a neurologist to assess this problem. No simple remedies can be offered.
