Popping of ears while swallowing , ringing. Histroy of earpain in flight while descending. Solution?

ok so about 2 months ago i went on vacation to jamaica, and while i was there i got a cold. when i came back to canada on the flight descending , my ears were very painful and they didnt pop until 2 days later. about a week later i went to the doctor and he prescribed me a nasal spray called avamys. i used it for a few days but stopped because it was giving me headaches. therefore i dont think it really helped my ears and ever since they pop when i swallow and sometimes i get ringing. anyways, tomorrow i am going back to jamaica so as a precautionary measure i have started to use the nasal spray again hoping it will work. my ears tend to only hurt on the way down, but im scared this time because my ears already feel weird from last time. will this spray have helped my eustachian tubes? is there anything else i could do ??

Hello Friend
Welcome to H.C.M
With little information and as per the history you have given and the clinical findings you may be suffering with eustachian tube dysfunction. this is more worrisome when you go to higher altitude either in plane or on mountain. You need to put nasal decongestant drops while in plane and chewing gums will help to some extent. valsalva maneuvre is helpful.
But still I would suggest you to consult the Specialist if you don’t get relief as on examination the findings may be different and line of treatment may have to be changed. Please don’t hesitate to consult and ask for any more query. i will be pleased to answer.
With best wishes for a speedy cure
Yours sincerely
