I've been using CPAP with exhalation relief since October. I am now having a problem with ear pressure that I cannot relieve by yawning. It feels something like you'd get going up in a plane - only I can't get rid of it. I know that sometimes before falling asleep I feel air going into my ear when, for example, I swallow at the wrong time just as air is rushing in (I'm using an autopap now to find the right pressure since my last AHI was 21). I bet there are plenty of other times at night when the air also is pushed into my ears that I am unaware of. I went to an ENT doctor and he said my hearing is fine and that it might just go away spontaneously. Would I be less likely to have this problem with a BiPAP?

Coming from a certified Open Water Scuba Instructor, I was glad to read your post Dan as I figure this is an area of the human body a diving instructor would know about.
Mine are still driving me crazy with annoyance. I see the ENT in 2 weeks. Hopefully, he will either cure the problem this time or cut my ears off and throw them away. The *blowing* against my fingers is the only thing that gives me any relief.
Guess it's time for me to learn how to do this nose netti pot thingy... akkkk.. always something more to learn & make part of a daily routine huh?!
