As I have gotten older, I have noticed that if you have swollen sinuses, the symptoms will get into the inner ear, which can cause headaches and inner problems with ear ringing. I never have had a doctor explain it well. If you can improve sinus drainage the symptoms get much better. The nasal steroid sprays or a saline rinse do help. I do think mucinex helps a lot with drainage as you said. By the way, I have noticed excedrin works better on headaches than tylenol or aspirin by itself.
