Head feels like a barometer

I have pretty much always had sinus problems. Also have a deviated septum, which contributes to a lot. A few years ago though I noticed that if I'm on my back or bend over too far, I have a lot of pressure in my head and eyes. Even more problematic though is that I cannot have sex on my back, it literally feels like I am being strangled! I am not exaggerating. With the hot weather, my head actually feels like a barometer. When the humidity goes up, I can feel the pressure increase drastically behind my eyes and in my head in that area. When the humidity goes down and it's not as hot, the pressure eases and my sinus begins to drain. I have had tests, they say my heart is fine, and no blockages according to ultrasounds. My doctor mentioned once about the table tilt test but has not followed through on that. Oddly enough, my husband and I have an inversion table, and that doesn't bother me. I am at my wits end.
