    A diver once told me that they get headaches after they dive. What is the best way to relive that? Or prevent it?

    Most often headaches are caused by dehydration. Apart from overheating and sweating while in your wetsuit, as a diver you breath dry filtered air which dehydrates you over time.

    Make sure you drink plenty of water before and after dives, also best if you don’t have a big night of drinking the evening before and get a good nights rest. There are plenty of other reasons but this is the most common.

    I would have never thought about getting headaches Alva so I am glad that you brought this up. I typically do not get enough water in my diet to begin with, so I will have to make sure that if I am going to dive, I do have the water intake that I need.
