Hi guys and Gals
I have recently taken up freediving again after a 7 year break and have experienced some problems equalising my ears. My left ear equalises fine but my right ear requires much more pressure and a few more meters depth before it responds, this means that my left ear recieves too much pressure and is quite painfull also causing air to escape through my righ eye tear duct.Doesn't sound good now I read my post and I am bit concerned. Any one experienced these sort of problems??

Welcome aboard. :)
Try to use the search engine for your questions before posting, chances are that someone have asked them before.

This one was just a few threads down to yours:

There's ample more information about equalizing if you'll use the search engine.
