    Sinus rinse disaster

    I attempted to use a sinus rinse to clear the think snot from my nose and sinuses so I could breathe.

    I gagged and the solution went up my eustation tubes into my middle ears. The pain was immediate and intense!

    After a bit of crying like a baby, I tried laying down to try to encourage the solution to come out. Two hours later and the solution is still in my middle ears. This causes muffled hearing, pain, and I can feel the fluid move around whenever I change positions.

    How do I get the solution out of my middle ears?

    Is it now likely that the bacteria causing the sinus infection will now cause an infection in my middle ears?
