Hello,

Chronic sinusitis is a common and troublesome condition. I would advise you the following:
- Visit an ENT specialist
- Get a CT scan of your sinuses
- Get evaluated for mastoiditis

Mastoids are located behind the ears. In people with recurrent sinusitis, these can get infected and cause pain in the head, neck and around the ears. You need to get this checked and treated.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Pranav Balakrishnan, General & Family Physician
