Go to boots chemist and get some flight ear plugs, they are called something like EarPlanes.

Only cost a few quid, you put them in for take off and landing, they work wonders and with them in your ears you will not have the problem.

 

Alos chewing gum and taking planty of sips of water during take off and landing also help as well as a vick stick to sniff.

Cheers Mick

Had the same problem myself many years ago and now I always buy a decongestant and take it for a couple of days before the flight. If your eustachian tube is blocked in any way then it cannot equalize the air pressure effectively, as you are coming in to land that is when the air pressure in the cabin increases and it can push your eardrum inwards leading to the excruciating pain.Smokers would be more prone to this complaint for obvious reasons.Hope this helps mate.

When I read about the perils of drinking I gave up reading.

i had the same problem coming back from los.. last year.. i actually almost cry..( no joke ).. it was the most painful experience i have ever had in my ear.. i almost couldnt hear for about 2 hours after that.. but then i was a bit sick so maybe that was the problem..

Edited by PE.GOB

its BETTER to be PISSED OFF then PISSED ON!!!..

Oh damn I've this pain too but only once in a while. At the time, I felt like my eardrums gonna explode or burst as the pain. You know I was pretty worried that when I landed I would be deaf (though everyone says its not possible) but the pain really makes me feel otherwise. I did a bit of swallowing the saliva and drinking water, it helps eases the pain but a little bit.

 

I have a question though, if I don't bother to swallow my saliva, what would it happen?

My job was flying--Its called val sav--Pinch your nose and try to blow out your ears..They will pop equalizing the pressure changes..Sometimes a big Yawn also clears the ears..Hope this helps..

No place on the Planet like Pattaya..Don't let your meat loaf

I also had this problem a couple of times. During one flight on the way down this pain from hell started to come when suddenly i heared a loud snap inside my head. Then i felt something running from my nose.

I thought Great, a nose bleed, now something definitly broke inside my head.

But it wasn´t blood. It was snot! It came like a waterfall!

I blew my nose for 10 minutes, completly using up a large package of tissues.

After about 15 paper tissues completly filled my friends started looking funny and asking if it was something left of my brain...

It must have been some sort of snot-record...

 

When i came back home i asked the doc what the he** that was. He shoved some sort of camera up my nose and saw that the by-pass channels between the cavities you have in your head (don´t know the english name for it) were to narrow.

On the next visit he took some gigant Q-tips dipped in some sort of chemical that would loosen up the mucous membrane and violently stuffed them up my nose and left me sitting there for 30 minutes.

 

Since then i have never suffered from "aeroplane ear" again!

The doc said that it was a very common problem and easy to get rid of!

 

Cheers.

Its the pressure changes.

 

Most likely you got it this time because you had a cold and where blocked up.

With luck if you fly without being blocked up your okay.

 

I've been diving with a chronic blocked nose because it was the end of my hols and it was use em or lose em.

It can be quite dangerous.

The above are good ways of equalizing the pressure.

If its really blocked up bad they can be dangerous.

 

Best to try and equalise early, gently and frequently before the pain starts

 

If its really hurting you dont' try and equalise.

In years gone by hostesses used to come round the plane with boiled sweets at the start of the descent, strangely now it never seems to happen. Lots of sucking and particularly swallowing will help equalize the pressure in your ears. Try yawning frequently this helps a lot. As a last resort the SCUBA technique mentioned above should do the trick. If you fly with a cold and are blocked up this will make things a lot worse, it may be an idea to take a decongestant.

i have had many many ear infections as a kid, and i ALWAYS had huge problems with flying, as my eastachius tubes are problematic... when trying to equalise by pinching your nose and blowing, it feels like my eyes will pop out and often it wont equalise anyways.

 

now i either start to sniff salt water, or use other decongestants days before i fly, and i have no problems equalising anymore, and last flights chewing gum already did the trick of equalising.

 

would be interested to know if those ear plugs really work, do you have to keep them in all flight?

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
