Head or sinus?

I have a weird one for you. First off I get major head pressure pain which feels like someone is squeezing my brain. It last for a few seconds then goes away. It comes and goes from 2-30 minutes over a few days. Laying down or bending over causes the pressure pain to stay. I get what feels like bubbles going up the left side of my nose and when they reach the top they 'pop' which causes a more painful squeezing feeling. Once and thankfully once, it felt like I had a firecracker going off in the front top part of my head. I also get the sensation of chlorine. As if I just went for a long swim in a pool and took a breath of water.

Not sure if it is part of it but I also get 'bloody' noses without the blood. Its weird but it feels like I'm going to get a bloody nose and then it is like water runs out for a few seconds. This doesn't usually happen during the headaches but both the headaches and the nose thing come at random times and with the bubble feeling I wasn't sure if that was like a sign to something.

I'm looking for someone who maybe has an idea of what is going on or has this too. It is affecting my life and work now and I would really like it to stop. People look at me like I'm crazy when I tell them what is going on. I have been to the doctors about it, had a few scans. They found nothing. They tried all the headache medicines and NOTHING works. I read that the chlorine thing could be a sinus infection but I have had this during times where I have been on antibiotics. Any help would be great. Thank you
