Burning pain & smell chlorine or ammonia

I have chronic sinus infections. Tonight I was laying on my side in bed, and turned my head toward my shoulder. I suddenly I felt my sinus start to drain, and it tasted chemical, and smelled like chlorine or ammonia. This was accompanied with a strong burst of burning pain deep in my head, and the back & top of my skull. The pain didn't last long, but I still have a burning sensation in my head. I haven't had any kidney trouble, and I'm pretty sure my liver's ok.
I don't know if I should be scared or not. I'd really like to know what could cause this to happen.
:confused: Thanks for any insight.
