Hi Naked Nun
You do describe a possible sinus infection - and the fact that changing position makes it worse also points to this! If you don't have fever, and don't have thick yellow or green mucus, you could try the following first: Use drixine or illiadin nose spray twice a day. Wait about 15 min after putting this in , when your nose is open, sniff saltwater and blow out ( you must sniff it in just to about between your eyes, dont let it run down the back of your throat) Make the saltwater with lukewarm water - 1 cup and half a teaspoon of salt. Must taste like tears. Do this at least 3 times a day if possible. Drink Viral choice C one twice a day for 5 days. Use something like Myprodol or Mypaid for the pain. Avoid anything that dries up the nose.
BUT If the breathlessness or irregular pulse worsens, if you have fever, if the headache gets worse and you have a stiff neck or nausea, if your chest gets worse, SEE A DOCTOR...
