They told us not to worry about equalising during ascent, but it seems some people must still be careful about it.
Now my friend is even more worried than before. She says that if gurning solves the problem, it'll be perfect, but otherwise, descending won't be the only stressful part of the dive for her. Let's hope she can equalise by moving her jaw.
