      Fluid, from a cold. No noise damage or infection.
      So I’ve had a cold for the past week and as always my ears have got a bit clogged up. They’re definitely not blocked but I can feel that there is fluid in there.

      I’m supposed to be travelling up to London this weekend, and while it’s not an incredibly fast train it does go through a lot of tunnels that change the air pressure.

      In the past I’ve found this uncomfortable with my tinnitus as I have to regularly pop my ears but that’s all.

      I know your not supposed to fly with clogged ears but I was wondering if anyone has ever had problems with fast trains? I’d be happy with any feedback, thanks!

      Hum...I only have experience with flying vs. trains and clogged ears.

      Take something to dry up your sinuses? Not sure if using earplane ear plugs is good with clogged ears. I use them when flying because it helps with the air pressure changes during landing and take off.

      I don't think you would have any problems on a train even going through tunnels.
