Cough: Sounds like a viral illness with bronchitis and sinus issues. The cough in bronchitis can go on for a month. If its persistent you should get a chest xray and make sure you don't have pneumonia. You might need antibiotics. For the sinus part, steam, saline sprays and OTC decongestants help (dont take them late or you will be up all night)
Sinus pressure: Sinus pressure would be in your face, cheeks, behind your eyes or in your fore head. It would not be in your neck. If you have sinus pressure, then it will respond to decongestants and possibly antihistamines if the obstruction is due to allergic inflammation. If there is an infection, you may need antibiotics. If OTC treatments don't relieve your pressure, please consult an ENT.See 1 more doctor answer
Have sinus pressure in face and my head has been seemingly hurting a little bit. Some of my head pain has been in the temple area from time to time.
Hang in there: If more than a week consider seeing a doctor for sinus infection evaluation.
What is the best way to relieve sinus pressure in head. Have a cold and when I blow my nose I feel pressure in back of head and all over?
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. A "cold" that lasts more than 7-10 days is a sinus infection by definition - antibiotics are needed at that point.

Get it checked out: Check with your doctor that it's not an inner ear infection or something else completely. Be safe!
When someone has a brain tumor, do they have pressure in the head all over or is it like sinus pressure that's more in the forehead?
Possible, but: Headache is common in brain tumors. They are usually dull, constant, and worse at night, and can be associated with nausea, vomiting, seizure or other neurological symptoms. They can be generalized from increased brain pressure due to the mass or localized on the tumor side. Brain tumor can also be asymptomatic. Note, persistent headache or change from prior headache should be evaluated by a doc.

I have sinus pressure on left side of face, ear aches/head sometimes and have dried bloody boogers in left nostril at times. What is the cause of this?
MY ACHING HEAD: Sinuses are air-filled structures in our heads that warm & filter the air we breathe while decreasing the weight of our skull. When inflamed and filled with mucus, it is like having heavy, water balloons pressing on your face from the inside (ouch). Consider antihistamines (Cetrilizine) and/or decongestants (Pseudoephedrine). If not improving, consult me and we'll figure it out together.
Pulsing in right ear off and on. It's not like a heartbeat, its more of a pulsating sound. I have a cold and some sinus pressure in my head.?
Pulsations in ear: If the pulsating sensation in the ear is recent and related to the sinus pressure in your head and cold symptoms, it is to be expected. A cold commonly is associated with dysfunction of the eustachian tube connecting the nose and ear. A visit to your ear nose and throat doctor will likely be helpful because prescription medications to reduce inflammation will also affect the ear pulsations.See 1 more doctor answer

Hmmm: Most common things being common, dehydration is the first possibility. The bot water raises your temperature and your body adjusts by relaxing the blood vessels near your skin to increase heat loss. This can cause light-headedness as your blood pressure comes down, and heart increases its rate to compensate. Hydrate better, and watch over-heating. If no better or persists, back to the doctor!See 1 more doctor answer
