In my case it was the fall-down-the-stairs-and-smoosh-face-in yuck, just rearing its ugly head in the form of bone-ouch.

The interesting thing is that there's now a spot on the inside edge of my left eyebrow where I pretty much can't feel anything, short of pressure on the bone. TBQ suggests this would be a good time to get an eyebrow piercing.

It sometimes helps blocked sinuses if you hang your head upside down for a while, then give your nose a good blow. The sinuses in your nose - all our noses - are very badly designed - or perhaps designed for a time when we spent our life on all fours (looking at the ground to find food, I mean!)- and the drainage hole is near the top, so if you stand on your head, or hang it over the edge of the bed, it helps them drain.

This isn't so much a blocked sinus, unfortunately, as bone that's still bruised from getting hit when I fell down the stairs. Since it's the edges of the sinus cavity thogh, it gives off the same feeling as being blocked.

Good advice though -- I'll try it out the next time I actually do have a sinus cold, which is pretty frequently.
