I have a sinus infection and anytime it's quit I hear a humming sound how do I get rid of it I'm sure it's from the fluid but it drives me nuts?

In brief: Tinnitus. See ENT

I think it is quite important for you to see an ENT doctor. If there is fluid it needs to be removed.
There are other causes of humming in the ears called tinnitus, that need to be excluded by special tests. There is no simple way of getting rid of your symptoms.
