Just a thought that has been in the back of my brain.

Is there any such thing or is it possible to be (let's call it) Micro bent? Every so often after dives here at Tahoe (7000')I tend to feel a very minor ache in a finger joint, ankle or somewhere else. Nothing ever comes from it, it never gets worse and after a couple of hours it's gone. Could just be strain etc on that particular joint of course.

All dive end with the requisite safety stop of 3 - 5 minutes at 12 feet followed by an underwater swim back towards the beach that is any where from 2 - five minutes depending on the dive location with the depth getting shallower.

I've diving up here for the past two summers, got certified back in 94 and never had any serious or even minor troubles except for an 0 ring that went bad in my reg right before a night dive.
