Many people have trouble with plugging or pain in their ears during airplane rides. Most people have trouble during the plane's descent.
As airplanes descend, the air pressure increases. If you cannot get enough air through your nose and up the Eustachian tube to the middle ear (the space behind the eardrum), a negative pressure is created behind the eardrum, causing pressure and pain.
There are two things you can do to help prevent pressure and pain during flights.
