Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Considering the fact that you have had the symptoms, runny nose, and sinusitis, in my opinion the hearing loss might be a complication of this health condition and it can be caused from an ear infection or eustachian tube blockage from increased nasal secretions.
You should consult an otorhinolaringologist and perform an ear examination to see if there is a middle ear infection and to start using antibiotics tablets and/or ear drops.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi one week ago I had my right ear syringed and during this I experienced terrible pain and it had to be stopped. The nurse looked inside my ear and it was bleeding and very red. She called the doctor who examined me and gave me some ear drops to take for a couple of days. I still keep getting an ache in the ear and when I burp the ear hurts. Any suggestions why this may be happening?
