    I asked my mum about this, I hate it too. She said you can do these methods:

    Drink something

    Suck on a sweet

    Eat something

    Blow your nose

    or get ear plugs

    Buying water past security is the best way to relieve tension. Swallowing allows the eustachian tube in your ear to open up so that pressure can readily increase to match the outside pressure. Plus you can get mildly dehydrated from the thin air.

    your neck, idk how to fix that sorry. But your ears, there are some ways, You can chew gum, yawn, drink water, but if it really hurts, then tell the FA before the plane starts descending and they will prepare some napkins soaked in hot water, put those napkins at the bottom of a cup and put the cup over your ear. it actually works.

    Yeah that sucks, always happens to me when I sleep on the plane. Usually chewing or swallowing over and over helps its release sometimes.....

    You need to release the pressure in your ears by:

    Chewing gum

    Yawning

    Swallowing

    Hold nose and blow

    Different techniques work for different people.

    Yawn, chew gum, plugging your ears sometimes helps. There's not really much you can do, but thankfully its over pretty quickly.

    Chew gum

    Blow your nose

    Use the Val-Salva technique

    I don't think you can; it happened to me and it's awful. I guess your ears are also sensitive and that happens because of the pressure.

    That happens with me too. It's so annoying.

    I've heard of these things called 'Earplanes' that you can get at chemists. Apparently, they work.
