Hello fellow divers,

For about a half year I've been diving with one or two friends in the local public pool.

I can reach the 25 meter with easy and very relaxed. Since a few week I'm trying to turn at 25 meter and do 50 meters.

When i surface at 35 meters i have a tingling feeling/sensation through whole my body (excluding my extremities, fingers, feet etc).

My first guess was that it had something to do with the fact that i surface and i have to swim a bit to get to the end. With 25 meters i could immediately rest.

The cramps i get are virtually non existing, except when i turn at 25 meters and have to straighten my body again, that is still difficult.

I do breath very calmly before i start my dive and inhale about 90% oxygen once before diving.

I read tingling can be a sign of low blood pressure, but in my case it is not in my extremities but in my core.

Should i be worried about the tingling? (it's not painful, actually a bit pleasurable)
My guess is yes. It sounds like your body is saying "take it easy".
