Why does it seem like the descent toward the destination airport is faster than the climb after takeoff?

Why always have a harder time dealing with pressure in my ears when descending than I do during climbing despite wearing special ear plugs for flying?

In fact, the flight’s descent is frequently slower than its climb. The cabin descends at a rate of 300–500 feet per minute,.

The direction of airflow in your eustachian tube is the cause of your difficulty in clearing your ears. Your eardrum is compressed as it descends, which can hurt. The difference in pressure is reduced by clearing your ears.

Yelling, chewing gum, or holding your nose and blowing against it can all help to open your Eustachian tube and allow air to match the surrounding air pressure.

Ask your physician for advice.
