Facts about sinusitis?
Hi, Please help me whether ear pain and headache can be caused due to sinusitis also? I have ear pain from past 2 years and took nasal spray and other medicine but not curing my ear pain. Suggest me reason and any medicine.

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. - Dr Gladson Guddappa Uchil
