Not: I'm not aware of any association. Someone here will correct me if I'm wrong. ...Read more
No: The vestibular apparatus, the nerves in the middle ear, do not change their function with changes in atmospheric pressure. However when rapid changes in pressure happen like going up in an elevator in a skyscraper or during landing in an airplane the air space in the middle ear may not readily equalize with the pressure acting on the outside of the body and cause some people to feel dizzy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
One thing that triggers my migraines is the barometric pressure (storms). How do you avoid a storm?
Migraines: Changes in weather, humidity, temperature, etc., have been known to trigger migraines. If you know a storm is coming, best to try and get away from its path for a while. If you can't then at least be prepared for it with enough of your medications in stock and other things that help relieve the headaches. ...Read more
I was wondering what you do to get rid of the migraines triggered by the change in barometric pressure?
Be vigilant: This is common. Some migraineurs would make great weatherpeople; they can predict a cold front 3 days in advance without any silly Doppler radar. Mainly women, I don't know why. It helps not to wait till the headache arrives. Try treating as soon as you feel the "hovering" feeling migraineurs describe. Work out a stepwise system with multiple meds. ...Read more

Minor alterations: And changes in ambient barometric pressure can cause sinus pressure, "popping" and muffling of hearing. Major decreases or increases are responsible for ruptured ear drums, brain swelling, and pulmonary edema, for atmospheric change in pressure. The pressures encountered when diving are basically the same with the addition of nitrogen narcosis, and the "bends" to name a few. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can symptoms of Lyme disease (and coinfections) become worse due to changes in the weather (such as change in barometric pressure)?

No effect: There should be no effect of changes in air pressure or humidity on mild mitral valve disease. Mild mitral insufficiency should not be affected by anything environmental. ...Read more
Yes: Rapid drop in barometric pressure is associated with a slightly higher incidence of nosebleeds, although the more important factor is the dryness of the air. Low relative humidity definitely increases the chances of having a nosebleed. The first things to try in cases of recurring nosebleeds involve moisturizing the nose: saline nasal spray, moisturizing nasal gel, a humidifier, etc. ...Read more

It is not a myth. Falling barometric pressure (usually indicating rain) will increase joint pain! Is it why my joints hurts? I have RA!
You are correct: You are correct. It is not a myth. Joseph hollander, md proved that in the early 1960s using a climate chamber. No one is sure of the exact mechanism but it may have to do with delayed ability to equalize pressure inside the joint to the outside barometric pressure as the outside pressure falls. ...Read more

As a matter of fact: There is a type of headache known as, you guessed, it...."the barometric headache." these can be very painful, virtually identical to a migraine in symptoms, duration, and disability. They occur in the presence of changes of barometric pressure. That means good to bad as well as bad to good weather. Tough to treat but easy to predict. Good luck. Solution: find place with little climate change. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
How often are autism spectrum disorders (e.g., Asperger's syndrome) undiagnosed until adulthood? How is such a diagnosis made?
Minor autism: The diagnosis is a clinical one. When issues like impaired attention and depressed mood are also present the diagnosis of Aspergers (now termed minor autism) is made more difficult. There are varying degrees of involment of multiple cognitive domains and behavioral features involved. No two people are alike. Get an opinion from a well trained expert in behavioral medicine who deals with autism. ...Read more
