Brief Answer:
This might be a flu!

Detailed Answer:

Hi and thanks so much for this query.

This could be a flu. However, we do not need any specific treatment. Continue with Tylenol only for fever. Stop Advil as this can lead to gastric irritation and pain. Eat well, take much fruits and exercise regularly. If pain persists, add pantoprazole.

I hope this helps and guides. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.

Brief Answer:
Nothing!

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

THis just happened and am not sure this happens all the times when you fly. However, always get some gum and chew as you take off and land on the airplane as this helps keeps the orifices in the upper way open and balances pressure to avoid tinnitus and ear pain.

I wish you well.
