See primary or ENT: It is not uncommon for you to have some hearing disturbance with sinusitis or soon afterwards, but it should not last for long. It is tough to tell exactly what is going on without doing a proper exam. If this persists for more than a few days or is bothersome to you, consider seeing your primary doctor or ENT. Best wishes.
