Hi, I got nice little head and chest cold or whatever on Sunday/Monday. Monday I flew from Seattle to San Francisco and while landing my ears clogged up so bad it felt like knives were being stabbed repeatedly into my ear drums. It hurt so bad all I could do was rock back and forth for ten minutes or more. It subsided after we landed but my ears were still a bit tender. That was Monday. Today, well yesterday... on wednesday I flew again to Chicago and upon landing my ears started to do it again. they narrowly avoided the stabbing pain, but after we landed the clogged feeling didn't go away in my left ear. It's been twelve hours since we landed and it feels as if something is wrong in there, like it's clogged but maybe not clogged or something and of course I can't hear worth a hoot at all either.
I'm pretty nervous as to what's up. Does anybody have any insight? thanks so much.
I will try that. It's now been almost 36 hours since I landed and my ear is in the same state. I'm wondering why it continues to be so. Wouldn't it have changed by now. Also, what is actually going on, I read about pressure differences in the tubes and all, but now that i've been landed for so long, why isn't anything resolving. I'm still sick if that matters to anyones answer.
