Equalize problem for diver with Sinus(Resdung)

Post Number:#1  Postby run » Thu Sep 29, 2011 3:31 pm

This is a very yucky post but it is good to know.
Why are some divers with no flu or cold but still unable to equalize.
Some divers prescribe Clarinese. Some forum prescribe Sudafed. Some say
better go to the ENT specialist. For those who cash flow in a restricted limit each month,
may find going to the specialist is no easy task.
What is it with having to go to the ENT specialist?
Open this PDF file and you will know.

This is a blog (sorry it is in Malay) about this guy who has done many treatment for
his Sinus problem until finally he made a decision to go the specialist instead.
It showed a picture of a Polyps build up in his nose.  :icon_puke_l:
What is a Polyps? Read the pdf link.

Oh man i feel gross right now.

So at least check with the specialist to understand what your real problem is.

mmmmmm.....


sebelum ni saya mmg x penah dive semasa flu... tp baru2 ni saya dive dgn keadaan selsema...
ferghhhhh.... mmg susah nk equalize pada kedalaman 2m... pastu saya terpaksa naik kat surface, dan buang semua hingus... dan bila turun, saya equalise sekerap yg buleh... then baru buleh turun bawah...
TAPI.. bila gi diving, mmg saya rasa squeze kat kepala... rasa mcm pening kepala... kepala rasa di tekan2...
beberapa saat selepas tu... sakit kepala kian hilang.....
saya dive seperti biasa dan ambil gambar seperti biasa....
lepas naik... saya rasa lega....
bila buang hingus, darah pun keluar sama....
mmmm... sapa buleh huraikan apa yg sebenarnya berlaku??

i read infections can spread all over the brain and face because of trying to sneeze out the mucus.

suhaimi..perhaps the unlucky ones may get the infection but there are some that have no effect at all.
It depends on individual immune system. I read in the earlier posting (old version thread) this diver named Hole Master have had problem equalize at shallow depth but he when gets deeper , everything was ok.

In your case it was because the mucus have build up in your forehead and nose so the deeper you go the more pressure you felt. The mucus need to come out. I experience this myself before. I was at 14m down under and i dont think it was wise for me to head up to the surface. The head was pounding.My mask skirting was filled with the mucus so no other choice but to take off the mask. Sneeze out the mucus gently. This would be a dangerous act if i was beside to a trigger fish nesting ground. So i look around if there was any danger. After sneezing it out then i felt relief from the headpain. So my masking clearing method have changed to a mask recovery instead. I had to do this several time.
I breath in and blow all the air through my nose without the mask on. I didn't dive deeper cause
i calculated myself if there was going to be any emergency i need to be around depth that was possible for me
to re-act positively.
When i try to ascend, the mucus came out easily because of the low pressure. On the surface i check for any blood residue. Since i didn't force myself hard so there was no blood at all.
Yes it is dumb to go diving while having a flu. I learned a trick from a senior diver on how to un-block the nose if you are having a flu. Sometime it works and sometime its not. Though i will not discuss it here. Afraid any newbies will learn this method the wrong way.
Nothing much could be seen if all the time you had to open the mask and blow out your mucus. I have sinus long before i entered the diving world. So i need to
figure out some way to enjoy my dive while at the same time not risking myself and others who diving with me.
Heading to the ENT is the best solution there is.
