Plumbingfilter: A kitchen faucet suddenly lost water pressure. I've checked the mesh screen, I've tried to snake it out. What are my options?

My kitchen sink's faucet suddenly lost water pressure while it was on. The sprayer hose thing however still has very good pressure. Everything else in the house is fine. I detect no leaks anywhere, including under the sink. The mesh is clean. I've snaked it as far as I could with some wire and come up with nothing...but that doesn't mean it was a thorough job.
I've googled around a bit and found mostly suggestions to "check the mesh" - yeah, that's fine.
What now? Am I really going to have to tear apart the whole faucet assembly looking for...what? That's part of my trepidation - I don't know what I should be looking for.
