Is DP/DR consistent with chronic sinusitis?

About 3 months ago I was having a lot of ear infections and my ears were clogged up. One day at work my vision got blurry and I started having weird thoughts but thought nothing of it. As the time went on it got worse and worse and my ENT told me I had a sinus infection and now, I'm scheduled for surgery. Is there a chance that my DP/DR is a result of this chronic sinusitis?

I have wondered about swollen sinuses being connected with shallow breathing. Like part of some unconscious mechanism to limit breathing might be for the sinuses to swell up.

This would then work in combination with muscular tension to suppress feeling.

Pretty wacky theory that one but it's something that has crossed my mind as since getting DP it has felt as if my sinuses have been more stuffy than they used to be.
