Clogged Ears from Sphenoid sinus

For the past two months, I've been having ear problems. I went to my doctor and he gave me ear drops and antibiotics for the infection. Even after a month later, I was still having problems with my ears. They feels like I have thick mucus in them. I went back to my doctor and he said that my ears looks a lot better, but gave me a second round of antibiotics. He ordered me to get a CT and referred me to see an ENT.

Today, I went to the ENT and he looked in my ears and said that they looked normal.

He then went over my CT results and they found clouding of left chamber of the Sphenoid sinus as well as the posterior 2/3 of the left ethmoid air cells consistent with sinusitis.

I don't have the common symptoms on having a sinus infection.

No sore throat, my nose is not running, no congestion, no bad headaches.

I sometimes blow out yellow mucus and my sense of smell is off and minor headaches from time to time.

My ear is a different story. I have fullness and drainage in the back of my throat. My ears pop and crackle all the time.

The ENT ended up referring me to another specialist due to my Cerebral Palsy. Most likely, they have to put me under for any treatment.

Has anyone experience similar problems with their ears due to Sphenoid sinus?

It feels like I'm going deaf.
