I rather like my ear and would prefer not to cut it off.

Sinus infection backed up into my poor ears. I need some relief while I wait on the med's to do their trick! [more inside]

How does pressure transfer from eardrum to stapes?

Ear anatomy filter: How come vibration pressure increased by 22 time as sound travels from tympanic membrane to the base of the stapes while tympanic membrane is only 17 time larger than the base of the stapes? [more inside]

Never talk to the angry without earplugs

EarPressureFilter: I had an argument with someone a couple hours ago, and they yelled in my left ear for a few seconds. My ear isn't ringing. but it feels pressurized, like I'm underwater, on and off. I've taken a full dose of magnesium-based antacid...anything else I can do? Will a doctor be able to help, or do I just need to move somewhere with a vow of silence for a month?

1 ear still stuffy after flight. Is this bad?

Tell-me-I'm-not-going-deaf-filter: I was flying home from Chicago one night ago, happily listening to the new Cornelius album - drifting off into the soft relief that benedryl supplies when you have been rocking a head cold for 2 days (sore throat, leaky nose, watery eyes, headache) - when suddenly I'm wide awake with a severe pain in both my ears from the plane starting its decent. And it lasts. I swallow and swallow, but I'm reeling in pain, saying terribly mean things to my very confused and sleepy girlfriend - and it doesn't stop until well after I'm off the plane.

Ear popping sucks.

I have read that airplane cabin pressures are regulated to match the pressure at about 8000 ft. Why is the pressure not regulated to approximate ground level conditions? [more inside]
