Bizzare, me too Lauren. My list is almost exactly as yours:
-Vapor Rub (had to laugh as my hubby thinks I'm nuts with this stuff, but believe it is a cure all). I also bought some of those personal vapor cups that you put hot water in and the vapor tablet that emits the vapor smell. They seemed to elivate the head pressure some too.
-Mine was watching Roseanne reruns (still do, same shows over and over)
-Bedtime was a forget all ever exists time for me. Wish I could sleep forever sometimes. I would count the hours until bedtime.
-I got another dog (younger one that could walk long) Walking always helped me termendously
-moving (when I forced myself) always resulted in me feeling better
-Always felt better after eating/still do
-this one is strange: yes, crying always felt like the pressure was releived some afterwards even though my sinuses were/are now full. Wonder why?
-Sun on my face always makes me feel so much better. In the winter, the only room that would get some sun was my bathroom (the way the sun comes up where I live would hit that particular window) I sometimes just stand with my face up to the window for quite a long time. The first year, I would actually drive to the park in the winter when the sun was scarce and find a spot where the sun would shine through my window. I eventually bought a light that mimics the sun's natural rays with out the harmful UVA. They use them for people with Season Deficeit Disorder.
It is like you wrote out my list for me.
