Lost nearly all hearing due to flying with a cold

Jump to last reply

At the end of my last vacation I had the worst cold, but that would not be the worst of it. I had to go back home by air and once the plane started down and the pressure changed, I lost most of my hearing in both ears.

Arriving back in America I went through immigration. The agent at customs asked me a variety of questions but I could barely hear him. He must of thought I was messing with him, even though I told him that I had gone partially deaf flying with a bad cold. He kept asking me questions.

It took me three days to get my hearing back after flying with a cold. Can you relate?
