ear problems are nothing to mess with. my cousin dove despite the advice of her doctor (she's deaf in one ear from a brain tumor) and fucked up her good ear for months. not only that, but my old skydiving instructor burst his ear drum likely due to the great pressure differentials he was putting his body though every other day. sometimes it's best to not dive if you have any history of ear problems at all.
