Audiologist Questions Sinusitis

Can sinusitis cause hearing impairment?

I have a perpetual sinusitis problem, and it's not going away with any pain medication or nasal decongestants. Can this eventually cause hearing impairment?

Sinusitis does not directly cause hearing impairment. However, sinus infections can lead to ear infections, which can then have a hearing-impairment symptom. Your body should be able to work through sinusitis. But if it hasn’t resolved itself over a prolonged period, then you should consult an Otolaryngologist (ENT) to get that figured out.
