Your : Your symptoms as a teen could have been due to a number of factors including dehydration, heat-related illness, or deconditioning with exhaustion. If you still get these symptoms with exercise (or at rest), you should see your doctor and prepare for an evaluation that looks at cardiovascular, neurologic, and metabolic abnormalities. If these symptoms eventually went away, i wouldn't lose too much sleep worrying. ...Read more

I'm a skinny person with thin arms and boney hands, so having visible veins in my arms is nothing new, but after working a lot, the veins in my arms stick out really bad and hurt from overexertion. It takes a day or two for them to go back to normal and f

Normal: you are describing a normal healthy person. If yourveins hurt it could be the muscles being tired. Try raising your arms after completing your exercise or work. The veins will go flat. If this happens then just rest after your exercise and then veins will flatten earlier. ...Read more

Inner : Inner ear dcs is an extremely rare form of dcs and is not likely based on your dive profile. It is most commonly seen in deep dives with heliox mixtures (edmonds et al, diving and subaquatic medicine, 2002) and may be associated with changes of breathing gas at deep depths as a result of isobaric counterdiffusion (brubakk and neuman, physiology and medicine of diving, 2003), neither of which was present in your dive history. Additional history with regard to the onset of symptoms (during the dive, immediately after dive, delayed onset after dive) could help to differentiate iedcs from other etiologies. It would also be helpful to know whether the symtoms have improved or resolved, and if so, when. Physical examination would provide helpful information in making an accurate diagnosis. Iedcs can be associated with acute sensorineural hearing loss, vertigo and tinnitis (ringing in the ears). Inner ear barotrauma may present with many overlapping symptoms, so direct visualization of the ear drum and hearing tests would be mandatory before a diagnosis of iedcs can be made. Although i believe that iedcs is very unlikely in your case, the only way to be sure is to be examined by a qualified physician. ...Read more
