Swimmers Eear

« on: July 04 2008 15:07:00 »

Ive ruptured(popped)my eardrum 2 times now, from surfing, and I just turned 15. Being out of the water for a week and a half sucks and i hate ear plugs, so i figure i should get one of the machines that dries out your ear.

I found 2 that look the same except one is about 50 bucks cheaper than the other. Are they the same?

It sounds fairly to have it happen at only 15 yrs of age.

I started to have ear problems at about 56.  Im 57 1/2 now and have fixed it a lot from doing yoga and Shiatsu.
It also seems to help a lot to not duckdive deep.  I used to do eskimo rools only years ago and never had an ear problem.   ( Hope the info helps you some. ) It's supposed to be good to put some olive oil in the ear before you go surfing too.
