At least the pain aspect of it went away within a few days.

You could try antihistamines and decongestants but they haven't been doing much for me, really. I haven't been shooting since this started, as I don't know if the noise stress would prolong this. OTOH, maybe it would help unblock it!
Mine started before Christmas and I thought it was going away but still here and the ringing is a pain in the rear. I guess it is better than the flu but not a real lot of fun. Thanks for the info.
