    Pretty sure the North Sea medical centre at Gorleston doesn't exist any more, though the hyperbaric chamber is still at James Pagett. https://www.lhmhealthcare.com/about-...outh-facility/

    Thankyou for the reply. I contacted a dive medic via email and she told me as long as I can equalise fine and I can hear, that there are no issues. I still plan to be very cautious and do not plan to dive until the second week, and I will descend much slower, equalising more often. I knew I did not have an ear infection as I have many before and know what they feel like - this was different. Thanks for confirming my thoughts.

    Take a copy of the email with you.
    Chances are you will need to sign a self-cert medical declaration and one of the questions you'll need to
    answer yes to will mean having to see a local doc. Show them the email and all will be good

    Make sure you take all the doctor's sign offs with you on holiday too and make copies for yourself too.

    I don't know if you've gone yet but I have problems equialising. I find doing some gentle ear equalising on land in the lead up to the days I'm diving helps. Also someone on here put me onto sinus rinsing 3 dives ago, and its helped, so may be worth considering?
