Does anyone else get pains in your ears from sinus problems? I have been getting a sharp pain on and off in my ear for a few days now. Do you think I have an ear infection?

I had the same thing a week ago! I had had neck surgery 3 months ago and worried it was a deep infection. My left ear hurt a lot especially at night. They looked in it and couldn't see anything. Ran blood tests and it showed I have allergies but no infection. So I have started back on Allegra and it went away. I had no other allergy symptoms so it was weird. But obviously allergy.

deborah - I have had sharp pains deep in my ears for about a year now. I've gone to the ENT and the allergist and they both are kind of at a loss... ENT says it's silent reflux or inner-ear auto-immune disease and allergist says it's allergies. I'm getting allergy shots for bermuda grass and ragweed. I'm also taking zyrtec, which has actually cut down on the pain a bit and the tinnitus, but I still have a hard time hearing sometimes. When I went to the urgent care for my ear, they said it wasn't an ear infection but gave me pain drops.

I saw a doctor about it this morning and he said the inside of my ear had some swelling and told me to take Claritin D and do the neti pot. I thought I had to of had an infection, but I guess not.
