Have sinus infection and pain in ear. Why am I getting squishing sound in ear?

For 3 days I ve heard a squishing sound in my right ear. I hear it every time I yawn and when I pop my ears (done without pinching my nose ). I sleep with ear plugs and the sound happens every time I move if laying on myright side. I also frequently hear it when I smile. I have a bad sinus infection and have had pain in that ear for a few weeks. Thoughts?

Welcome in H.C.M.
I have gone through query regarding sinus infection and ear ache with squishing sound in ear.
I would like to tell you that due to your sinus infection there may be post nasal drip which in turn creates infection in throat and ultimately reaches the ear via Eustachian tube and give rise to acute otitis media, which hurts your ear and ear pops with unwanted sound in ear
Thus you are having sinusitis with tinnitus. as far as treatment is concerned you should take antibiotics, anti histaminics, decongestants and steam inhalation.

With Regards.
