On a road trip right now, randomly keep getting dizzy and major pressure in my head. I have uncompensated labyrinthitis, I noticed when we got close to a storm it got A LOT worse, is that the Lab?

In brief: Inner ear

I believe that changes in barometric pressure can affect the balance mechanisms of the inner ear and fluid retention may also play a role.
A neurologist or an otolaryngologist who specializes in labyrinthine disorders can advise you better,however.

In brief: Yes

Yes. If you have the medicine you normally take for this, it is time to begin it now.
Over the counter relief can be gained with an antihistamine/decongestant combination to relieve pressure and dramamine (dimenhydrinate) for dizziness. Follow up with your doctor when you get back home.
