Hello Everyone, I am in a bit of a predicament. I flew in to LA yesterday and my ears were in terrible pain. I always get this on flights because my ear canals cannot equalize the pressure. Usually I take some Affrin and try really hard to pop my ears. The last few flights I have had success with that process. However, this flight to L.A. was terrible. My one ear simply would not pop. I think I might have punctured my eardrum as well, and that really hurt. My ear did equalize a bit eventually, about an hour away from LAX. Now the problem, I have to leave to go back home tomorrow but I cant decide if I should just grin and bear the pain or go see a doctor here. I am more or less concerned with any possibility of long term damage. I dont know if my ears are more plugged up more now or what Just something tells me I am going to get on the plane tomorrow with even more pain. I absolutely hate flying solely for this problem. Does anyone here know a good ear doctor they could recommend? I know no one over here . If one of you would be so kind to PM me, or even give me a call on my cell (that would be better actually) 586.612.7055. Thank you all for reading this!!
