Re: Ear pressure
Jul 12, 2001
I also experieince from pressure and popping my ears. I had drainage tubes put in 8 days ago and I think they are making everything worse. I have Eustachean Tube Dysfunction as a result of an infection from 1993. I have been suffering since. When I fly, it is awful and it takes 4-6 months to recover. The tubes are supposed to help equlize the pressure when I fly or go into higher elevations. I don't know if I can stand the symptoms that I feel now with the tubes. I have headaches in the back of my head/neck area now and I don't like it. I am going back to the ENT next Thursday. I think I might be better of having the tubes removed and dealing with the circumstances when I fly. There are Ear Planes out now which are pressurized ear plugs that help to stabilize the pressure in the ears. Decongestants prior to landing and Afrin Nose spray are supposed to help as well on an airplane decent.
