I think it is a sign that you either have a sinus infection, or some type of sinus blockage. The water has added to the pressure and that is why you feel it in your ears. If you roll your head facing down, from one shoulder to another you should be able to get the water out and relieve the pressure. And see a doctor as soon as you can.

During your sinus rinse, you might have gotten some "sinus rinse" in your Eustachian tubes, which are located near the back of your throat, and lead right into your middle ear.

I agree with beerzoids, if you swallow while flushing, its opens the passages of your eustachian tubes and can allow water in, it should pass soon.had that happen a few times.

Re: HORRIBLE Ear Pain after using sinus rinse HELP

I'm glad the antibiotics seem to be helping, but I thought I'd post a personal experience just in case it helps you or anyone else. I had my sinuses surgically cleaned out in October. I've been using the NeilMed bottle 2-3 times a day since, filled with an antibiotic solution. Right after the surgery, I had earaches (pressure in my ears). I used OTC ear wax removal drops, and found that I had more blockage than I thought. I think my blocked ears weren't noticeable to me because my sinuses were so bad. When the doctor cleaned my sinuses, it made the ear pressure more noticeable. Using the ear wax drops helped.
