Very often an ear infection is caused by a sinus infection. The ears are connected to the back of the nose by the eustachian tubes that run along the outside walls of the nasopharynx. The eustachian tubes keep the pressure between the ears and the nose equal and maintain the pressure in the ear the same as that in the outside world, which is constantly changing. At birth, the eustachian tubes may be horizontal or even angle upward, but as we get older, the angle of the tubes changes so that the tube drains into the nasopharynx. If the nasopharynx becomes inflamed, the ears can feel clogged as the eustachian tubes become swollen. An infection with fluid buildup can occur in the middle ear, leading to hearing loss, ear pain, and pressure.
