I've had that before, and on separate occasions another persistent smell that was a nastier odor. In both cases, it was an anaerobic bacterial infection, and I got rid of it with a Flip-Turn Sinus Flush. A regular sinus irrigation usually doesn't work because the bacteria usually reside in the upper sinuses
I have had blocked eustachian tubes for two weeks now and am miserable - my hearing is suffering and I'm exhausted with it! Funnily enough I have just said to my son that I smell cigarette smoke but no-one smokes ....imagine me finding this post 10 minutes later. I was searching for info re eustachian tubes and read this. I must have the bacteria in my sinuses! Good luck.
