I have a sinus infection.. I think. Well my nose is clogged, and have mucus. Thats really about it. The other night I was trying to pop my ears because I felt like my ear was clooged like when ur on a plane. Well while trying to pop it, I DID hear a pop, but then I was in PAIN!! I went to the store and bought ear drops, and i took an antibiotic my dh had, and half of a vicodine for the pain. I went to bed, and the next day I felt A LOT better. Last night it hurt again, so I took the same meds, plus the ear drops, and this morning I feel great, but its STILL clogged! I looked online for remedies, but most are for ear waxx build up. I am for sure its not wax.
What can I do to get this water, ear drop solution, or whatever out of my ear?? (The crappy part about all this is that I dont have insurance!!)

I have this a lot too. I always take Mucinex. It clears it up within a couple of days. The tube from your ear to your nasal passage gets clogged and causes those symptoms. The Mucinex dries up the moisture and it will help with the sinus infection too. You won't feel any better until it clears, but it does work. Do make sure to drink plenty of water because the Mucinex can dehydrate you.
