It is the pressure changes in your ears that causes the pain. Your Eustachian tubes might not be releasing enough air and then pressure builds up that causes discomfort. You can do a few things while ascending and decending - try to equalize the ear by closing the nose and mouth and gently blowing through the ears, or try to chew something like jelly babies. You could also consider the use of decongestive medication before the flight. All these options should be discussed with your doctor though. It might also be advisable to see an audiologist and Ear, nose and throat specialist to evaluate the functioning of your Eaustachian tubes. If you don't know of any ENT's or Audiologists in your area, please let me know and i will gladly refer you (firstname.lastname@example.org)
