is it a sinus infection...maybe not
my whole head just feels heavy, like a lot of pressure. Like those medicine commercials where the people's heads are balloons and whatever medicine they use helps the pressure go away.
I dont have a sore throat, just feels swollen, and my nose is not runny, but is more stuffy, with out being congested.
Any ideas on what medicine will help ?

Mucinex is the OTC version of Guaufenesin...As this article states it is also helpful in draining nasal secretions.
"Guaifenesin is also considered helpful for thinning postnasal drainage from the sinuses and reducing nasal congestion, and so may relieve sinus pressure/ headache. As Dr. Sarah Myhill comments, "Whoever designed the human body needs a black mark for putting in sinuses! They are cavities in the bones of the face with only one entry and exit hole which is easily blocked by catarrh or swollen mucus membranes." When this occurs, less oxygen can enter the sinuses, promoting bacterial overgrowth and causing sinusitis."
