Coughing, sneezing, runny nose, sore throat, pressure behind nose. What could be this?

I'm currently getting over what I assume is a cold. Coughing, sneezing, stuffy nose and runny nose, and sore throat. But these past few days, everytime I blow my nose, I feel a pressure behind the bridge of my nose, like a bubble expanding and then it sounds like air is leaking out of that bubble. What is causing this?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Swollen mucosa from infection or allergy may be responsible...
Blocking of drainage - usually of maxillary sinus - could be the cause
X-ray sinus (plain or CT) may be necessary
Decongestant nasal drops will help

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
