PRACTICE the equalization procedures taught by your instructor...Equalizing early and often is a key to success...if your ears hurt, ascend a bit and try again; look up, hold your nose and GENTLY blow consistent pressure for several seconds...tilting your head side to side while equalizing may help...Generally success at this skill improves the more you dive, but don't try to push it; if pain and inability to equalize persists, see an ENT...Some of us "old" guys swear by sudafed (scubafed) for minor head congestion, but your doctor should be consulted. Good Luck!

Exactly as stated above! Funny, I once had an instructor who advised the same manner and method, verbatim! Now I teach the same technique precisely as described to my students! Wonder where that guy is now? He was like, 'Super Instructor'...oke
