Pain in the back and shoulder. Had ear infection and high sinus pressure. Should I be worried about any lymphatic problem?

i have been to a clinic at least 3 times in the last 6 weeks. first with an ear infection in my right ear, then my left, and throughout the process had major sinus pressure. Since my last trip, i was given prednizone, and a decongestant as well as cefprozil . Though it had seemed to be working, i still have major pain in my back/left shoulder and the feeling as if my sinuses are draining through them. Is this an ear/nose/throat issue or should i be more concerned with my lymph system?

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Sinus disease is generally not associated with musculosketal pain because the systems are not connected.

If you are experiencing a viral illness which is aggravating your sinuses, then it is possible that the muscles and joint aches are occurring as part of the viral illness.
In this case the use of pain killers such as paracetamol would be helpful.

In terms of the lymphatic system, this would also not cause joint or muscle pain.

I hope this helps
