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

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
