Blocked ear valve!!
After diving it sometimes takes upto a week for my ears to clear i get a feeling as if they have still got water in them.
i dived last about three weeks ago and my left ear as not been the same since,i've been to see the nurse at my doctors and she said my ears are clear of infection and that i should come back and have a hearing test to which the results where the hearing test results point to a blocked ear valve. Can you please shed some light on this for me and is it going to affect my diving in the future.
