Hey guys, thanks for all the useful information.

I think Chris might be right. What he said got me thinking and i went scuba diving several years ago and i got ear/headache when i was only 10-15ft down, so i probably have weak sinuses.

I guess it's just something i'll have to live with and hope i get lucky.

Thanks again everyone.

nope!! never broken my nose either!! which definately leads me to think it's just a genetic weakness or something ;)

Quoting Napoleon_U

In the past when i traveled by plane everything was normal, i had the occasional ear ache but nothing too bad. However over the past 2 years when i have traveled i have been struck down with chronic head pain.

It is usually behind one of my eyes and it is extremely intense pain. It usually happens on the descent so i'm assuming it's pressure related. I tend to sit there with my head in my lap in agony wishing it would end. My eyes usually go somewhat bloodshocked as a result of the pain. The pain dies down after i land, but can take anywhere from 1 day - 1 month to clear completely.

On my last trip i tried using some caplets that open up the airwaves so oxygen/bloody could flow freely in my head, but it didn't help.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this

Well if you feel pressure behind the back of your eyes then gently massaging will give you relief from the pressure and headache.

That's good advice, but this thread is 11 years old and I can't see that the original poster has been active on the site in the past decade. Welcome to the forums anyway. :)
