Pressure In Ears After Flying
Pressure in the middle ear is ideally equal to environmental pressure. It is corrected by the eustachian tube, which connects from the middle ear to the back of nose. The popping that occurs when one goes in an airplane is the eustachian tube opening to equalize ear pressure. When pressures differ, the ear drum can be sucked in or bulge out. With this fluid can accumulate ...Read more

Hearing heartbeat in left ear when laying and changing position. Short periods of muffled hearing in same ear. Daily headaches in back of head.
Likely noncaddiac: Normal heart beats can frequently be heard by patients when they lie on their side or ear. It's a common complaint i hear in the office. We title it "cardiac awareness". Uncertain why it manifests itself to patients when it does. I suspect this is not a cardiac abnormality. Headaches obviously shouldn't be treated lightly. Common allergies on up to more important organic causes may be responsible. ...Read more
Pressure back of head, neck and ears for three weeks. Pulsing in ears worse on right. Nasal passage clear no fluid in ears. Sinus infection?.
Agree w Dr. Wyatt: It may represent barotrauma - this could occur at deeper or shallower depths. You referred to "deep water". You haven't told us if this is breath hold diving, scuba diving, surface supplied air, mixed gas or what. Your dive profile will help provide a clue as to cause.

It may work: It may work.. It just takes a while and you may not need it:try performing a valsalva maneuver - pinch your nose and gently "blow" air out of your nose while at the same time bearing down like you are lifting something.
