Headache and pressure to back of head, dizziness for 4 days straight. Could be something serious? Its a 9 month wait for MRI scan.

Diagnosis could be--: Based on what you are saying about the headache I would guess that either you are suffering from a migraine, dad tension type headache, or medication overuse type of headache since I see you are taking acetaminophen.

Sinus rinsing: Nasal rinsing/neti-pot saline rinse is a very effective FIRST line remedy for acute sinus issues (I usually recommend chitorhino (chitorhino. Com). You may want to consider a short course of nasal decongestants like Afrin or neosynephrine - but use these for no more than 3 days.
