Question
Posted : August 8, 2007
Can you advise the best way to resolve problems with equalisation. I have tried the pinching of the nose to pop them but this results in pain & they just won't pop! I was recommended to try 'equalease' nasal spray but to date this seems to have little to no effect. I would be grateful for any suggestions to help me, as this is the only thing that spoils my enjoyment of the sport. many thanks.
I have saught the advise from my doctors surgery who have prescribed antibiotics in case I have blocked tubes from a head cold, however, I have been advised NOT to use 'sudofed' when diving. If this is correct can you advise on an alternative.

This needs answering by the medical community - go see a diving doctor. www.uksdmc.co.uk lists all of them under the page Medical Referees.
