Yea man. I actually called DAN yesterday and talked to one of those guys up there and he went through all that stuff, sent me an email with some more detailed info. He even mentioned like neuro problem being that I arfed and all. He said my best bet would be to see my physician.

any sinus problems? I have been having a hard time with allergys the last couple weeks. It may have something to do with it.

Are you diving air or nitrox? Where are you having your tanks filled? The headaches are "nitrogen headaches". They come when you've breathed too much nitrogen at depth. Kind of like a hangover headache. If you were on air, get nitrox certified to lessen the amount of nitrogen in the mix. This will help tremendously. Also, possibilities, gotten out of shape, tired from working/partying too hard, sinus issues that increase the amount of mucus on the lining of the lungs, therefore decreasing the ability of the lung to absorb oxygen. Also, if you are having your tanks filled by an individual with a compressor, you might want to look and see where the intake hose is placed. There was a guy years ago that died down in the keys due to the intake of a dive shop being in the rear of the building - where the UPS truck was left idled while the guy made the runs around the complex - carbon dioxide poisoning. There's a lot of factors there. Check all of them out. Keep diving!

Yea I'm breathing reg air, never had any sinus probs, I equalize my ears with ease, fill the tanks myself at the fire dept along with other divers in the dept, they haven't had any headaches.

But as far as the arfing, what yall think. I've never been sea sick so I dont know the symptoms.
