Low water pressure in kitchen sink

I'm having a water pressure issue with my kitchen sink in my Chaperrel 29bhs. My shower, bathroom sink, and outdoor kitchen sink all work fine. My kitchen sink pressure was normal last night but as of this morning it only trickles. Any ideas?

Yes you probably have something in the faucet head blocking it. Unscrew the faucet cap and look in it for stuff and run the water with it off to flush it.

Plugged screen in the facet head.
Just cleaned mine this past weekend, I also removed the "water saving" device.

That's exactly the problem. Clogged screen. Should have checked that first but my paranoia kicked in and I thought it was something catastrophic. Thanks for the responses

Just started having this same problem, cleaned the screen out, it did have some like small rocks or some hard particles, however that did not resolve the issue.... what else should I look for?
Thanks,

I have the faucet with the retractable spray head. I noticed the same thing but my issue was the counter weight on the spray hose. The weight (used to keep sprayer in the faucet)was causing sprayer hose to kink. I loosened with weight, sliding it up a couple of inches. That stopped the problem.

Thanks,
how about the inlet screen where you attach you incoming water hose?

Not sure what you mean? IF you mean the screw on/off connection where the flex hose attaches to the nozzle, yes we did check that and cleaned some crude from that also.

Weight is not kinking the hose, the screens are cleaned out, even removed the faucet head and flushed it out. Problem is still there. bathroom water pressure is good/normal. So I am at a loss for solution.
