Ear Pain during Diving

Ear Pain is common in divers especially in training or during upper respiratory tract infections. Severe pain with sudden impaired hearing can occur while ascending up to the surface. Severe pressure within the middle ear could damage the middle ear bones and rupture the ear drum.

Another common ear pain in divers could be external ear canal infection due to fungus or bacteria. Very often impacted wax with water within the ear canal causes the similar type of pain.
