In brief: Absolutely

As a matter of fact, facial pain and pressure are the hallmark symptoms of a sinus infection.
You may have started out with "just" a run-of-the-mill cold with mainly nasal drainage and congestion,but sometimes that infection will invade your maxillary and frontal sinuses,causes added facial pain and pressure, along with intense headache/pressure.Try a neti pot, hot steam, warm compresses, naproxen
