In brief: Not advised
Pain with flying usually comes from problems with the eustachian tube.
This works to keep the air pressure under the eardrum equal to the outside pressure. It is better to do things to constantly equalize your ears by frequent swallowing, chewing gum and constantly clearing your ears. Decongestant medicines may also help.
