In my misbegotten youth, when many airplanes did not have pressurised cabins, [can you believe that?], it was the practise in those days for the stewardesses to come around with a tray of barleysugar sweets. We passengers ate these as the plane made it's slow descent, thus avoiding a poping of the ears caused by the increased pressure in the atmosphere as we got back towards sealevel.
Yes, if you hold your nostrils together between thumb and forefinger and blow, you can pop your ears. There is sometimes a small pain, but this quickly goes.
Why not just snort loudly into a handkerchief?
I always tend to ywan when I need to pop my ears. sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt. It sems when I yawn theres not a lot of pressure on your ears when you do this.
Act like you are gonna yawn... it always works for me!
It's easier to go on a short plane trip and have your ears pop at about 10,000ft
Try sucking a boiled sweet, usually works and no danger of bursting an eardrum.
