Why Do My Ears Pop on Planes?

Many people have difficulty equalizing pressure in their ears while flying. If your ears don’t equalize, it’s usually on plane landing. Some only experience a fullness or pressure in their ears. Others have pain and hearing loss. In most individuals the pressure equalizes shortly after landing. In some it may persist for much longer. Planes must be pressurized for passenger and crew comfort. At an altitude of 20,000-30,000 feet it is difficult to breath as there’s less oxygen at those altitudes. Commercial planes are usually pressurized to an altitude of 6,000-8,000 feet.

Sinus Trouble: Controlling and Treating Your Symptoms

More than 28 million adults in the U.S. are diagnosed with sinusitis or sinus infection each year and more than 17 million are given a diagnosis of nasal allergy. These diagnoses are not mutually exclusive, for many people with sinusitis, nasal allergy is a contributing factor. For those without nasal allergy, so-called non-allergic rhinitis (environmental sensitivity), sinusitis can be a problem as well. Sinuses and the Nose Often people confuse nasal problems with sinus problems. The nose is not just what sits on your face but rather two mucosal-lined air passageways that connect the air around us with the back…
