Yesterday I did some dynamic training in a depth of 7m. After a distance of 40m I started the emersion when I felt my eyes pressed together. I could not open them willingly. On the surface it was OK quiet fast, but I was thinking if this was LMC?
Did you ever experience something like that? I did not feel a shiver, only a compression of the eyes....

Best regards,
Did you used any kind of mask or swimming goggles?

Yes, I was using a standard mask (cressi superocchio). Eyes where compressed like cutting onions but without the burning feel....
