I am having problems equalizing my ear pressure while scuba diving. I recently took training for my open water dive certification.
I managed to pass the course but the last 2 dives I had a very hard time equalizing while I was ascending and descending. Are there more ways to equalize?
I have several tips you can try to see if it helps you to equalize while you are descending. You can find them on my page of ear scuba diving tips.
Hopefully one of those tips will help you clear your ears. There is also a link at the bottom of the page to a good video presentation dealing with equalization. If you haven't watched it yet, please take a look at it. It may help with your problem.
I would suggest to start clearing before you even begin your descent, go very slow when descending and clear the whole way down. If you feel too much pressure, ascend until you are equalized and try again.
Don't force it and take your time. I hope my tips help. Please let us know how it goes.
