I travel by air rather frequently, and for the past year or so one ear takes several days to return to normal after a flight. I have no trouble clearing/equalizing the pressure when ascending or descending (by blowing thru the ETs) -- but in one ear the fluid sensation and the thumping/bassy sound stays for several days. If I tilt my head forward 120 degrees, the pressure is relieved and the sound/sensation disappears -- and if I tilt my head to the left 90 degrees it also resolves -- but this obviously isn't the way I live my life. With my head in normal upright position, the thumping and rumbling is quite annoying. I can blow thru the ETs over and over with no improvement. This requires days and days before automatically resolving on its own. I have no ear pain, and my hearing seems normal, though rumbling in the affected ear. No improvement with OTC antihistamine. Is this still ETD? Are there other conservative therapies or solutions? Thanks!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
