    Re: What problems can one have in in the water

    When my wife first got scuba certified, she had a similar problem. Unable to breathe by mouth alone. It was a mental block though, not anything physical. The instructor was excellent, and worked her through it step by step. If you get in a bathtub with a mask you can figure this out in about ten seconds. And as a bonus, you come out smelling cleaner than when you went in.

    But seriously, if you can overcome the anxiety by easily trying this out in a controlled environment, go for it.

This will help prevent and to stop an ear infectection early. Shark man whats wrong wich you.

          First you are resurrecting a thread just to do some trash talking. Second, your grammar needs considerable improvement. Third, the alc/vinegar combo is actually effective.

          One out of three isn't bad????? Sheesh.

            Well three weeks isn't to bad, and I know it's effective, that's why I said it. However when I dive down to depths, 12 ft. or more my ears hurt, will that go away with time?

              That sounds like a pressure issue. If you can, try holding your nose, closing your mouth and gently, and I mean really gently blow against your nose. It will equalize the pressure in your inner ear which should help.

                The air spaces are the ears, sinuses-nose and mouth. It's called "clearing" the air space in your ears before an over-pressure condition arises. The obstacle faced with swimming upside down is water entry through your nose. If you clear your ears you will be o.k. Just remember not to breath-in through your nose or mouth if un-equipped. .
