Brief Answer: Possibility of sinusitis Detailed Answer: Hi Welcome to Healthcare-Magic Greetings of the day Dear Mr XXXXXXX The above symptoms are due to Sinusitis especially if there is frontal heaviness and blockage of nose. I would suggest you the following which will definitely help 1. Steam inhalation: 15 minutes each session thrice a day 2. Taking Ibuprofen will provide much needed relief from pain 3. Warm saline gargling: to a glass of lukewarm water add two spoon of common table salt. Gargle thrice a day.

Thank you doctor, actually doctor i have seen a general physician and he checked all my blood reports and everything was normal , and he told me that i m having some sort of chemical imbalance and prescribed medicines, one is neurobin and the other is prothiaden 75 mg, but i have stopped takin prothiaden as it maked me drowsy all the time during the day..... one thing i am depressed is that i think that something bad has happened to me which will never get all right. So is it possible doctor that this thinkin is making me more sick and i m getting these symptoms of constant head pressure, fullness in ears, tight nose as of somebody is pulling the nose backwards, neck pressure and all???
