This is an interesting narrative because it points out all of the uncertainty inherent in diagnosing decompression illness. There was no single objective test that proved you had it and I imagine there seldom is. Instead the diagnosis hinged on subjective self reported, vague neurologic signs and a physicians subjective assessment of the same. I can see how this resulted in non reimbursement from an Insurance company, which is a hazard I never considered. I think you and the doctor acted with appropriate caution given your history so I think your cautions are good ones. A person should avoid creating such a history. Its probably best to avoid exhaustion, fatigue, seasickness and too many dives. Its simply not worth the worry.
