    I agree with this completely. I use Neo-Synephrine Cold & Sinus Extra Strength Spray 0.50 oz (PACK OF 4)

    nasal spray. It is good for about 5-6 hours and is not as addicting as the 12 hour ones. Also, I like to use "Ear Planes" ear plugs. I was at CVS over the weekend, and they have a generic version of these that are about $8.00. They gradually let the air pressure into the ears and make the popping, pressure thing much more bearable. We've flown all over the place since diagnosis, even to Switzerland last summer. No issues whatsoever, and almost all of my disease has been nasal and sinus related--really bad.
