Why does barometric pressure cause pain flare-ups in people with chronic pain?

Why does barometric pressure cause pain flare-ups in people with chronic pain?

See below: Any person with chronic pain where there is inflammatory fluid produced can experience pain when this fluid expands and contracts with changes in barometric pressure which encroach on pain endings. ...Read more

Is there any correlation between barometric pressure and the onset of vertigo attacks?

Is there any correlation between barometric pressure and the onset of vertigo attacks?

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 more

One thing that triggers my migraines is the barometric pressure (storms). How do you avoid a storm?

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?

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

My baby is very sensitive to barometric pressure changes - what can I do?

My baby is very sensitive to barometric pressure changes - what can I do?

What do you mean?: What happens, under what circumstances, and when does it happen? Barometric pressure changes all the time. You can't do anything about that. But if you talk to your doctor about the specific symptoms she is having, maybe it can be helped. ...Read more

What are the possible negative impact of change of barometric pressure on some people, ?

What are the possible negative impact of change of barometric pressure on some people, ?

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 more

Can symptoms of Lyme disease (and coinfections) become worse due to changes in the weather (such as change in barometric pressure)?

Can symptoms of Lyme disease (and coinfections) become worse due to changes in the weather (such as change in barometric pressure)?

Yes: Lyme disease can cause just about any symptom known to man, including sensitivity to changes in barometric pressure. Western medicine has little if anything to offer for this symptom but homeopathy and chinese medicine can help; of course proper treatment of lyme and co-infections should help too! ...Read more

How severe the effects of change in barometric pressure and air humidity in people with minor mitral regurgitation? Does any restriction apply? Ty.

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

Is it possible for low barometric pressure to cause a nose bleed?

Is it possible for low barometric pressure to cause a nose bleed?

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

Does Idiopathic intracranial hypertension become worse or better with barometric pressure change?

Does Idiopathic intracranial hypertension become worse or better with barometric pressure change?

Possible: The condition causes a fluid filled cavity inside your brain to have excess fluid. Similar to sinus pressure the fluid is effected by barometric presdure. ...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!

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

Less headaches when I travel to places with opposite barometric pressures than home (NOLA). Could this be inner ear related?

Less headaches when I travel to places with opposite barometric pressures than home (NOLA). Could this be inner ear related?

Well: Barometric pressure can affect the sinuses and the eustachian tube for the ears. This can have an effect on headaches. For specific diagnosis and treatment do it Healthtap visit or see primary care doctor ...Read more

Is it possible that a change in barametric pressure could cause a bad headach/migraine?

Is it possible that a change in barametric pressure could cause a bad headach/migraine?

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 more

How often are autism spectrum disorders (e.g., Asperger's syndrome) undiagnosed until adulthood? How is such a diagnosis made?

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
