alright im going through scuba certification classes right becuase over spring break im going down to belize and me and my sister wanted to get certified so we could scuba and what not, so i had my first pool time today and my right ear got screwed up cuase i couldnt get it equalized, my left ear is fine now (its been like 3 hours since i had it) but my right is still screwed up, i try plugging my nose and blowing and that kinda works but doesnt really do anything, anyone else know how to get it back to normal, or does it just kinda go back over time?

it will go back eventually, just try to pop your ears, like you do on a plane, the principal is the same...but i have a similar problem, when i am on a dive and we go up to do a boat check, i have such a hard time equalizing on the way back down, usually i am not able to go more than 15-20 feet, but yeah, just try to pop your ears, try chewing gum, swallowing, yawning, clicking your jaw, etc...btw, good for you for learning how to dive, i absolutely love it

You might have blown your eardrum. I'd say a trip to the doctor is in order if it persists.

Do you have a head cold/sinus problems?

I had to drop out of my certification course before the final eval dive because I couldn't equalize. Both my eardrums had ruptured blood vessels just from going in the pool, shit pissed me off b/c scuba was probably the coolest experience I've ever had...

i have like a minor cold, but it hasn't affected me at all. it happened after i was just practice diving to start, so liek we dove down then switched from snorkal mask to scuba mask and what not. except i went like too fast then couldnt get equalized out on the bottom. pool was either 10 or 12 feet i believe

That's what did it, you might have thought it wasn't a big deal, but that can really screw up your equalization.
you probably didn't blow an eardrum though, it should go away soon.

yeah, fluid can build up and swell on the inside of the ear which obstructs the eustachian tubes, thus making equalization difficult. I wouldn't recommend continuing the course if you keep having these problems, because what might seem like a manageable amount of pain in the 12 foot pool is going to be very serious at 60 or so feet. I really hope you get through this though man, I don't want anybody having the situation I had.
