Brief Answer:
Sinus infection

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for contacting HCM with your health care concerns

From your description it does sound like you have a sinus infection. If after 1 week the sinus pressure and congestion does not resolve then it is highly likely that you have a sinus infection. I recommend that you be seen by your provider or at an urgent care center to see if an antibiotic would be appropriate.

I hope I answered your question. Please contact HCM again with your health care concerns and questions.
