On Monday I flew from NY to FL and had


Q: On Monday I flew from NY to FL and had begun a small cold. On the plane both my ears hurt from the pressure and become clogged. It's been about 5 days. Yesterday my right ear popped and feels much better. However, my left ear is still completely clogged. When I bend over or something it sort of feels/sounds like water is moving in it. It's really strange. They don't really hurt but everything sounds muffled. My insurance doesn't cover doctors in FL and I won't be back in Ny for awhile. I don't know if I should wait it out to see if it pops or if I should go to the doctor bc maybe it's serious. Does it sound like an ear infection or just airplane ear? I'm just really concerned...I don't want to go deaf! I know I'm probably being dramatic...

Symptoms:  Cough, ear clogged, had stuffy nose
