Food poisoning possibly... but;
After the dive, did he say the world was swishing
from left to right underwater, causing the nausea?
Was he unable to walk imediately after the dive,
if at all?
Did it take upwards of three hours for the nausea
to subside, but not totally disappear?
Is he still woosey the next day?
If the questions I asked were answered with
a 'yes', I would guess some minor vestibular hit
caused by a micro bubble in one of his cochleas.
I would consult DAN since this type of episode is considered a form of DCS... and it has been know
to occur in dives as shallow as 15 ft.
I am not a doctor, but I have seen what you
