"Dear doctor,

I often prefer traveling from flights either for some business works or quenching my thirst for traveling. But, flying hurts my ears, every time during landing and takeoff.

This is me, curious to know about the worst thing I often realize while flying, and here is the answer that I received from the doctors. They didn't only tell me the reason of the ear pain but also suggested me the ways to protect my precious ears while flying.

The pain scares you and you plan to jump off immediately?

You think about the danger that may tear your eardrums and leave you deaf for the rest of your life. Yes! I can understand, it is the worst nightmare.

Don't worry. Your ears are absolutely fine.

Discover the reason of the pain.

Discover the reason of the pain.

When the plane takes-off or lands, at a certain height, the pressure inside your ear differs from the outer pressure, which creates blocking of the eustachian tube.

What is Eustachian tube?

What is Eustachian tube?

It is an internal organ which connects your middle ear and an end part of your throat. The tube often opens during chewing and yawning. And, it does block completely or sometimes partially due to the air pressure that creates pain in the ear.

But, it can be treated. We have found out the remedy as well.

And, believe me, nothing can be better than this.

Chew gum and get rid of the ear pain.

Chew gum and get rid of the ear pain.

Yes! Chewing doesn't let the eustachian tube block. And, the change in the air pressure doesn't effect your ears much and keeps your ear drum safe. So, the only pill you need to take for killing the pain in your ears is a chewing-gum. So, after learning this, chewing gum has become one of the most important things to be carried while traveling through the air. And, I know you will never forget to keep one.

So, don't scare now. Travel with all the zeal and happiness.

So, don't scare now. Travel with all the zeal and happiness.
