Eustachian tube: You may have, because of the changes in pressure, ruptured your eardrum, bled into it, or most likely had closure or dysfunction of the tube leading from your middle ear to the back of your throat. You might try using a decongestant (pseudoephedrine or oxymetozaline) which your friendly pharmacist can provide. If does not work, see your doctor.
