I have been diving 5 years now with 38 logged dives all in the caribeans.
during my last trip to mexico (Mayan Riviera) from oct 26th to nov 3rd 2002 on my last 4 dives when equalizing during up and down periods of the dive my nose started to bleed and splattered blood in my mask. It never got to an alarming state, but I wonder why this is happening now?
I had a chance to ask PATRICK MUSIMU which was there for is attempt on a new world freediving record of 140 metres. He said that it probably was because I was using the air conditionning in my room during my sleep. The a/c removes the humidity in the room drying the tissues in the nose, and when you dive he said the salt water creates a shock and breaks small veins which causes the problem.
any other ideas!
thank you for your time
