That is referred pain.. The sensory nerve Glossopharyngeal Nerve gives sensation to areas of the throat and the middle Ear.. So when you have a lesion in throat due to sinus infection, brain mistakes it for Ear problem due to common sensory supply by the nerve. Drop into my clinic Healthcare@Basaveshwaranagar ( use Google Maps to locate it on your smartphone) for a full clinical assessment to alleviate your problem.
