    how to relieve ear pain from elevation

    Every time I go out of town (higher elevation) and then coming back down to the city makes my ear hurt so bad! Drinking water, chewing gum, yawning doesn't help. Feels like my head might just explode due to the crucial ear pain. It goes away when I'm in the city, but how can I relieve the elevation pain while in the car? Thanks.

    I have the same issues... and I only suggest getting to the bottom of why your ear is doing this....

    Good Luck,

    I agree with that. A decongestant during your travel, as long as it isn't contraindicated for any health condition, may help. It sounds like a eustachian tube disfunction problem but WHY is the question. If you end up suffering for months or years on end, ventilation tubes, although certainly not perfect themselves, can solve that problem
