Have you ever ended a dive with a little blood coming out of your nose or mouth...due to diving with a cold or sinus congestion?

[Choose #5] Blood I think from too tight a mask. Do you ever get the old, numb lip after a dive?

[Choose #5] No, I’m lucky not to have sinus problems. My dive buddy has found a ear nose and throat specailist that is also a DIVER. He has set him up with a cocktail of presciption and patent madicines that keep him diving without problems. might b up/dpwn rate

[Choose #5] Never spit up blood, but when I last dove in the Red Sea I did taste blood in my mouth. Not actually sure why, I was a bit concerned during the dive as I never experienced that before.
