    Sinus and ear pressure

    I am 35 and have never had allergies except to cats and I sneeze a little in the change of seasons. In July I started to notice pressure in my ears, nothing worse than having to pop them more often. In September I started having bad sinus pressure and ear pressure. I went to my primary and was diagnosed with allergies and a sinus infection. I didn't and still don't have allergy symptoms (running nose, sneezing, coughing, watery/itchy eyes etc.). After taking the meds for the infection and the allergy meds prescribed I still didn't feel any better so I went to an ENT doctor. They took a nose culture and found I had a staph infection in my nose. I went through medication for that and allergy tests. The tests showed only a strong reaction to a grass that grows in Pennsylvania and only in the spring.

    It has been two weeks since my final appointment after taking the meds for the staph and I am still having pressure in my ears and sinuses. It's not as intense as when I had the staph but it is still bothering me. I have tried different decongestants, allergy meds, steam and a few other home remedies but nothing is helping even a bit. I'm not sure what could be the problem. Any ideas?
