  • it could be sinus infection or an ear infection. you could try flushing out your sinuses a few times a day with saline (non-medicated saline) and see if that helps any. if that doesn't help it's probably an ear infection and you could go to the dr. for ear drops.

  • sinus - the air quality contributes to it - also all the weather changing

  • Sounds like an ear infection, I just recently got over a double ear infection and that is what it felt like. I suggest going to your doctor for some ear drops and possible antibiotics. Feel better soon.

  • It sounds like either swimmers ear, or an ear infection. I think you might need an antibiotic. You should definitely go see your doctor, por perhaps purchase some polysporin for ears? It could be that you had a sinus infection, that could have lead to the the ear infection because the sinuses drained into the ears.

  • If it's sinus, try a neti pot. Probably need to see your doctor though.
