Dear Dr, I have just done my PADI open water course in Egypt. Each day after diving my partner and I both suffered from dizziness, although we'd had no problems equalising on the dives. We've been back for week and I'm still having some issues with balance. I'm a musician and I've been working and I can hear fine, I just don't feel 100%. I did have a stomach bug while I was away which hasn't totally settled down. Do you think the dizziness is down to that? thanks!

There are many causes for this,
viral, nitrogen etc,
but if you both have it it could be infective.
If you are still symptomatic please pop in so we can assess you
