In brief: Stopped Up Sinuses
Nasal sprays are the most effective treatment for stopped up sinuses, commonly nasal steroid sprays and antihistamines.
Saline flushes may also be helpful. If they are not working well, consider allergies or an anatomic problem. Sometimes, just lying down may lead to nasal congestion. Lots of causes: http://www.Twinlakesent.Com/sinus_disease.Html.

In brief: Sinus congestion
Sinus pressure can be initially treated with oral decongestans like sudafed, nyquil daytime/nighttime, nasal saline sprays and Mucinex (guaifenesin) (turns thick mucous to thin mucous).
A cool mist humidifer by the bedside can be soothing as well. If these household remedies are ineffective within one week, it is best to see you dr. For some prescription medication (nasal spray or antibiotic depending on cause.
