From personal experience, diving can help prevent migraines. Apparently the mild decompression causes blood vessel dilation or some other kind of shock to the system which assists in the prevention of migraines. I wonder if anybody knows of any research done in that direction.
- As a diver, I've never heard of that. Generally, solid tissue (brain, blood, skin) is not much affected by the pressures the recreational diver experiences. It is only air pockets (lungs, sinuses) that are notably affected. If you have any research citations on that, I'd sure be interested. Dr. Becker-Weidman Talk 18:27, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
