So I have a weird allergy symptom like cold thing, some mild coughing, little congestion but nothing too crazy. Fine no big deal.
I should also add I have had ear problems all my life, had tubes in couple times, all sorts of joy/surgeries like that.
Well I flew about 6 hours today, and didnt really think I'd be that bad - wrong. First flight so so, second flight my ears were killing me going up and took forever to adjust, and landing they were pounding. I felt like I couldnt hear anything for at least an hour.
So its like 5 hours later, things are so so with left ear, but right ear seems to have gotten worse, all I can hear is my pulse, breathing, etc. out of it. It doesen't seem to like me too much right now. Admittedly I did harass it earlier when it wasnt popping on the plane, I tried every little folding trick I could to no avail.
Now Im just wondering if I should be attributing this to the plane journey and just sleeping and trying to relax, or if I should be checking out an ER. It's good to know Im alive but I dont need this kind of narrative.
The last time something like this occured was after I was windsurfing and clapped the water hard with my ear, ended up having to get surgery then
Guess Im looking for someone to say 'this happens to me alll the time' or 'try this' so that I dont need to plan on extending my stay in town, heh..one can only hope
