    I missed this...

    Hope things continue to improve for you Bob.

    I've had issues with my ears after flying in the past. Not fun but I recovered after a few days. One ear was slightly muffled sounding but it was an acute pain that bothered me.

    I missed Shawn's comment 110% agreement! Couldn't look at any meat for days after my last experience...and I felt horribly hungover...even though I didn't drink!

    Thanks guys. Things are getting a bit better...I feel like I have a ring modulator a flanger and a delay pedal stuck in there...everything is about a half a step higher pitch in the left ear versus the right....it actually would make for a pretty cool effects pedal...that is if it wasn't stuck in the on position all the time!

    I had something like this happen in high school. However, it was most definitely related to sinus infection that spread... I didn't even notice the ear issue until I thought my car cassette player was broken, yes I'm old, because everything sounded distorted and warbly...

    I wish you well man, hope it clears up soon!!!

    I wanted to give you guys a quick and hopefully final update....I appreciated all of the support you gave to me. THANK YOU ALL!

    I went to the doctor today. My ear has dramatically improved....I would say it is close to 90% better. Per the audioligist exams my hearing is normal with the exception of a 5db dip at 4000Hz...Heck of a lot better than down 70+DB!!!! Thank God! Eardrum looks vastly improved...pressure trauma is healing up well...much better...weening off the drugs now...will check back with the doctor periodically per a schedule...but looks good! I'm not supposed to fly for a few months but I can live with that...that was a pretty scary experience!!!


    Doctor's final diagnosis for those of you who want to know the details--Issue most likely due to fluid in the ear when I flew leading to Ear Barotrauma when it didn't equalize properly -this damage created a vulnerability to either a viral or bacterial infection of the inner ear or set up a condition akin to endolymphatic hydrops (not full blown Ménière's disease).


    Best advice-----take a decongestant before you fly or you could severely and/or potentially permanently damage your ears! I've flown countless times...never thought twice...I'll make sure to take necessary precautions next time!

    Thank you all again...you guys are the best!

    Great new Bob.
    And thanks for the preventive measures - I've never done more than try to remember to swallow frequently.
