My ears are fine! I can breathe a sigh of relief…. well, according to the ENT, it would be a crooked sigh, but still, I’m okay to scuba dive!!! Apparently my right nasal passage is larger than my left, otherwise known as a deviated septum. This is what has caused me to have issues with nose bleeds and left ear pain in the past.
The solution? A few squirts of a nasal spray before diving and all will be fine.
Despite the fact that this new diagnosis makes me feel like a witch, I know it will be okay…… hell, I AM a witch with a b sometimes anyway!
I am so glad I don’t have to chop off my ear. I am not sure how I would have coped knowing that doing so wouldn’t have fixed the issue anyway!! 🙂
