Yes: You do not still have the vapors, but you do have the lining of your lungs inflamed and therefore not able to work as well.

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

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
