Sounds like cases of over-exhaustion... you guys went against tidal waves or something? hehe just kidding.

I think you guys are just not used to the amount of activity + lack of sleep.

Everyone with the same symtoms or different?

If same, then :
1) One person spread to the rest
2) Food at the resort got problem
3) Air fills got problem
4) Drinks at the resort got problem
Anyone can do a dive to 100m or more.....
But how many will return alive???

i think it was just too taxing for you guys, and perhaps you all did not drink enough water during the trip - signs of dehydration perhaps? I recall people telling us that after breathing compressed air, we actually should drink lots of water.

get well soon...
stay wet!

Guys,

I think its over-exhausted + food poisoning as well. I had the same thing when I went for my OW 2 weeks ago. I had cramped underwater and when I my completed my confined water dive, I had to take a dump (cirit-birit). But thank GOD #3 and #4 dive was OK. When I came back to KL, I was really tired... But of course now its ok and planning for my next dive.. :) Hopefully after Hari Raya break.

Cheers...
