Hi! I think that you have barotrauma. You should see an audiologist. The cause of your problem probably is differences between middle ear and ambient pressures. It may cause rupture of superficial vessels in the middle ear. It also causes a secretory otitis media, although in this instance the fluid is believed to be a transudate rather than normal mucus. Generally the fluid clears spontaneously over a period of several weeks. The efficacy of treatments such as nasal decongestants, oral decongestants, antihistamines is unclear. Antibiotics may help prevent infection in cases of severe barotrauma.
