Flying with Tinnitus? Here’s How to Cope

Tip #4. Use a Nasal Decongestant:

Even if you are not suffering from a cold or flu, consider taking along a nasal decongestant which will help keep your airways open for a better release of pressure.

Tip #5. Make Use of the Entertainment:

If there is in-flight entertainment provided, then you should make full use of this by focusing on the movie or music. This can be useful for helping you to concentrate on something else and take the focus away from your tinnitus. Along with that, entertainment may also be useful for helping you relax. Minimizing stress and worry as much as possible can help to alleviate the symptoms.

Tip #6. Stay Awake for Landing:

If you prefer to sleep during a flight, then make sure that you set an alarm to wake you up just before the plane is about to land. Since this is the part of the flight where your body has a harder time adjusting to the pressure changes, it’s important to be awake.
