Pain, numbness, tingling on one side of face while flying, occurs near the ear. Causes?

Hi, I usually get a terrible pain on one side of my face, with numbness, and tingling when flying. The pain is mostly around the ear and in the head and can be unbearable at times. This happens about half hour after the flight takes off and can last throughout the journey. What is the cause and what can I take from preventing this??

The probable cause of the severe pain on ur face as per the details u have given will be TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA. I advise you to consult a neurologist , to find out the exact cause for it. Neurologist will run some lab test and scan for head also, he will takes care of it.
