  12. My ears hurt when I dive to the bottom of a pool. Won’t they hurt when I dive in the sea?

    The pain in the ears is a normal sickness associated with diving. This happens because in normal situations, the air inside your ear is at the same pressure as the air outside your ear. But when you dive, the water outside causes excess pressure inside your ears that causes the eardrum to expand like a spring.

     

    This is exactly why your ears hurt! So when your ears hurt after diving in a pool or the sea, don’t panic. It gets back to normal after the pressure inside and outside the ears is equal.
