Is this sinusitis?

I've had odd pressure in my nose the last few days. Top, by my bridge on my right side.

It's not painful as such, but quite uncomfortable. I feel that it should 'pop' when I wrinkle my nose or blow it. It doesn't though and I'm very aware of it now.

I don't have a cold though...

Could be sinus-related, but sinusitis is infection in the sinuses, so you'd expect more cold-like symptoms.

Endless yellow/green snot?
Headaches/jaw ache?
Pressure behind the eyes?
Sore throat?

Could be sinusitis then... smile

Dach I'm no stranger to phlegm, snot and headaches, but strangely enough, I'm free of those symptoms, apart from the sore, pressure inside the top side of my hooter.

In fact, tonight, to escape the discomfort, I've popped some pills and am trying to not move around to escape the pulsing pain! Aaaargh
