Ear Infection from Sinusitis: Why do I have multiple aches at the same time?


ear-infection

One of the most frustrating things about having cold-like symptoms is that it can come with multiple aches at the same time. If it is chronic sinusitis, you are getting these types of uncomfortable symptoms much more often. It just doesn’t seem fair, does it? When you’re already experiencing pain and pressure in your head (and likely the rest of your face as well), you really don’t want to think of even more places that could be affected by backed up sinuses. Unfortunately, one of the other areas that is very well connected to that whole system—and thus, can eventually feel the pain as well—is the ear.

Otitis Media is another term for a classic ear infection. You will have a pretty good idea of whether you have reached this point if you tug lightly on your pinna, lobule, or tragus (in other words, any outer part of the ear you can easily grasp with your fingers) and it hurts. At later stages, if you leave the problem for even longer, the pain can start becoming apparent on its own (without touching your ear), and may feel like throbbing. Multiple aches at the same time are no fun, let alone just the annoyance from your nose being stuffed up. Instead of letting your sinusitis get to the stage where the congestion has made it over to other parts of your body and causes ear infection, consider getting yourself to our office.
