Hello, Welcome to Just answer! I would like to get more information so that I can address your concern appropriately.
How long are you having this pain?
How severe is it in 1 to 10 scale?
At the beginning of the week I got sinus pressure. This then turned into an ear ache in one ear then that migrated to the the other. It feels better in the mornings and worse at night. pain in morning is 1-2 and now is 4-5 dull constant pain
It feels like presseure
Do you have any ear discharge or pain when you move it?
no discharge. relief while its being moved and then returned pain when left alone
Do you have fever, nausea, heartache, cough? Are you taking any treatment for your sinus problem?
when i swallow it gets better temporarily sometimes
Do you feel like pressure or fullness in your ear?
Actualy correction. I did use a netty pot the other day to try and clean sinuses
yes pressure or fullness
Are you on any treatment right now?
How is your throat and sinus problem now? Do you think it is getting better?
yes it has gotten almost completely better
the ears are the only trouble now
Thank you for the information, it looks like you had sinus problem initial which lead to the development of ear symptoms as a part of complication.
It is a good thing that you recovered from sinus issues
For your ear problem, I don't think that you need to rush to ER because your pain is mild and you are on recovery phase
I would suggest you to take OTC decongestant meds for few days along wth steam inhalation at home and see if you feel better
ok. like sudafed or benadryl? the steam can be from boiling water?
If your earache become severe or you have discharge to any other throat/sinus symptoms again, then you will have to see your doctor
Ok thank you.
Any thing else I should know?
is it sudafed that you recomend?
yes, sudafed is fine. there are many other OTC decongestant you can find.
You can choose one of them.
