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
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

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
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
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

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)?
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

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
Vertigo attack (Dizzyness) twice in two days. Its worse after waking up with pressure on top of the head but gets better during the day. Any help?
DontDriveTilResolved: Technically, vertigo is different than"dizziness, "and it's an important distinction. If you truly feel like you are moving or it looks like the rom is moving or both, that's vertigo (an "hallucination of motion").Feeling whoozy or unsteady or foggy is more like dizziness. These are important distinctions. Ee how it goes for a few days. If it goes away, halleluja. If not, or getting worse, find a doc ...Read more

I have permanent pressure in ears that cause vertigo and black outs atleast ones a month is there any meds to help.
Seek Dr asap: There are several possible causes for chronic ear pressure with vertigo - Meniere's Disease, Eutachian Tube Dysfunction, Uncontrolled Hypertention, etc. However, the fact that you lose consciousness periodically is very concerning. See your clinician for an exam to determine what diagnostic tests (ie MRI, ECG, Rotary Chair, Tilt Table) or specialist referrals (ie, ENT) might be warranted. ...Read more
