500 mg Ibuprophen helps ease the pain! Sounds totally like sinus. I went through the same thing & it got so bad couldn't open my eyes, couldn't lay down or sit up. The infection in my head was hurendous. Had to get prescribed Astilen Nasal Spray & Steroid Nose Spray & Zirtec (generic will work also) plus I had to take Mucinex ever 4 hours. I also was on Prednisone for 3 consective regimens. One of the best things that helps rid your sinuses of infection is the "Sinus Rinse" squeeze bottle with table salt. You'll be able to actually see all the infection going down the drain.

go in your bathroom and shut the door.... turn on your shower, HOT water only, and let the bathroom steam up.... sit in there and breathe the moist air... helps me... I also get wash cloth wet with as hot water as I can stand and place it over my face as I lie down on bed and breathe the moist warm air.......

Try a netti pot or another type nasal rinse. I use a squirt type bottle I got at walmart and rinse my sinuses out twice a day with saline solution, then I squirt colloidal silver up my nose. Last year I had over 4 sinus infections and they lasted forever! My Dr had me start rinsing out my sinuses last year and I haven't had a sinus infection since (knocking on wood)

This is what I use: NeilMed SINUS RINSE Allergy & Sinus Kit | Walgreens
