Ear Pain While Travelling By Air

I experience a lot of pain in my right ear whenever I travel by air. This is usually the case when the airplane is descending. I think I have some hearing loss in this ear as well. And this ear also produces a lot more ear wax as compared to the left ear. Is there a remedy for this problem?

Answer:
First during air travel u can do chew chewing gum n repeated swallow of saliva that will help eustachian tube to remain open while descend. Never try to sleep during takeoff n descend.
Secondly for hearing loss u need evaluation as cant say anything without examination of ears n history.

Is pain during air travel an indicator of damage to the ear or is it a normal thing to experience?

Ascend n decend causes pressure changes.. So, to equalize these changes u must swallow repeatedly with nose pinched or eat/drink something or chew gums. But u need to consult a doctor for hearing loss and he may prescribe drugs for a week or so.

Yes there is remedy. Visit ENT Specialist. Get drips for ear wax. Check hearing level by PTA Tympanometry test. Use bubble gum while descending in air.

U might have raisha behind the ear drum so kindly get it checked by a nearby doctor
