Question
Posted : January 23, 2008
Body tingling: About 2 years ago I took my Open Water certificate and really enjoyed it. Immediately after I experienced body tingling or 'fizzing' this would pass through my entire body lasting for seconds only. After a few months it disappeared completely. In Nov 07 I went on hols again and took my Advanced Open Water. Again, since diving my body seems to be continually tingling, lasting seconds, brief pause, then off again. Is this likely to be linked to diving? If so, what can I do about it or is it normal?
I absolutely love diving and am planning another trip in April, so your guidance is much appreciated. Many thanks.

Hi, thanks for your query. This sounds very unusual and certainly not normal! We really need a lot more information and without doubt you should have a diving medical before you book more trips. See your local dive doc, or if you are in London (or can get there), it's 02078064028 for an appt.
Regards
