    Question Perfect sabotage at 110' deep...?

    Hello all! I've lurked on these boards for months. I'm a total novice. My mom used to forbid me from even LOOKING at scuba flyers because of my asthma. (FYI: If you've got no time for pleasantries, skip to the bold parts.) On my first day here, I didn't know what a regulator was. Or the...

    Question Fizzy/bubbly tissues in limbs after dives

    Hi all, I’ve had a strange symptom a few times recently after dives, and am hoping someone here might have thoughts on this or heard of something similar before.

    This stuff happens...

    I've been waffling about posting this but talking with another tech diver who's also had a DCS episode, it seems like we generally don't talk about these things, so I'll just file this under "maybe the purpose in one's life is to serve as a warning to others." So this is basically the...

    Could these symptoms be consistent with a perilymph fistula?

    Hey everyone, thanks so much for reading this. I am really lost at what to do at this point, and appreciate any and all advice. I earned my PADI open water cert in late December, and had trouble equalizing throughout the week I was diving. On one dive in particular, my right ear wouldn't...

    Hyperoxic myopia After a week of diving

    Hey Everyone: first let me say thanks, and that I appreciate the advice. I have been seeing medical professionals, and just wanted to seek some opinions on here, as this seems to be a rare-ish condition. After diving roughly 5 weeks ago, I noticed blurred distance vision in the airport while...

    How late is relapse possible on a flight after DCI?

    Hi all, I’m just wondering what the latest time is that anyone has heard of someone worsening from flying after a DCI hit, either treated or untreated. I’ve seen recommendations of no-fly times after treated DCS go as high as 6 weeks, but also seen people saying that after a week or two there’s...

    Why O2 for DCS?

    Hello, I have a technical question regarding the mechanism through which Oxygen helps with DCS symptoms. I am aware that it is an effective treatment, but I'm not clear on what actually happens inside the body as the Oxygen is breathed to help dissolve gas bubbles in the tissues. What are the...

    Is it possible for type 1 DCS to manifest into type 2?

    I went diving in Roatan about a month ago, after one of my deep dives (100 ft wreck dive) I noticed joint pain. I tried to ignore it and blame it on anxiety. In the last month i flew 4 times and only on the last flight I had tingling in my hand which I think is due to me sleeping in a weird...

    Tips for “Bubblers” - fatigue, headaches and recovery

    I love diving and I want to make sure I am doing this safely with the least impact/recovery and would love to hear from you. While I don’t think I’ve ever had more than subclinical DCI, I seem to suffer the effects of diving more than my buddies. Exhaustion, headaches, aches, nausea, the not all...

    Do you know anyone suffering from DCS?

    Guy was the huge fun of diving, but an accident blocked him out of water and he can't jump into the water anymore. 12 years later, a new technology gives him opportunity to dive again with his buddy. Accident happens and the DCS is NOT just stories. We need to pay more attention and help...

    Do I have DCS?

    Hi! I’m relatively new to diving and I’m not sure if I should be panicking or if I’m being paranoid. I did a dive on Saturday to 17m. We started to do a safety stop but I had an issue with my drysuit where the legs inflated, pushing my fins off and pulling me upwards. My buddy and the DM...

    Going tech - Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) testing?

    I had a girlfriend who happened to be a doctor who would research diving accidents when we would go on holiday. She did this to (presumably) scare me out of diving so I would spend more time with her. :cuddles: She brought up PFO based on a number of incidents she research and I learned how...
