Chronic rhinitis, decreased hearing. Will nasal spray clear this up?

Hi, I had grommets as a child, I am now 28 years old, ears & hearing fine bar 1 or 2 swimmers ear infections over the years, I have chronic rhinitis , over the last 12 months or so, my hearing has decreased, now to the point where I am unable to hear clearly unless people talk very loudly or directly into my ear. I have visited GP, she said both ears are clear of wax, but they are both very dull, I have to do nasal spray for 2 weeks & go back, will this clear it up? My nose is clear at moment. I am worried I will need hearing aids .

this depends on which typre of hearing loss you have
if the loss is conductive you can except reverse after clearing the nose
if you have sensory neural loss it will remain
get your pure tone audiometry tests done and after that it is possible to tell what to due
normally sprays clears the nose and reverse hearing if it is conductive
