Consider auricular acupuncture with small needles that remain in the ears for up to 7 days. I use them whenever I fly.

Quick fixes may be getting an rx from your pcp or urgent care doctor.If you plan on overcoming this without meds and desire a long term fix you should look into counselling as well.
