Barometric Pressure
Aug 18th, 2017 at 3:36pm
 
Admittedly ignorant on the subject of barometric pressure, especially as it pertains to medical disorders, specifically CH's.

To the best of my knowledge, this has never been issue with me residing in the same place (Las Vegas) for 25 years where I assume the barometric pressure is fairly stable year round. However, I recently relocated out of Las Vegas and am now residing far north by the Canadian border. Up here, it is much colder, much more humid, and now wondering about barometric pressure - rising, falling, etc.

In the past I recall CH'ers mentioning going up a mountain, down a mountain, into and out of a valley, concerns when flying with altitude, etc of which I don't recall personally ever having issue. However, I do recall having an attack on three different occasions triggered when scuba diving at depths below 50 ft.

Does anybody have personal stories or info to share on barometric pressure as it relates to CH's?

Thanks in advance.

Hey Gregg,

Living in Ireland the weather is famously changeable and consequently, so is the barometric pressure.

As a result I frequently suffer attacks (admittedly not too bad thanks to D3).

I have always believed there is a direct relationship between Cluster attacks and changes in barometric pressure.

Peter.

Yo Gregg,

High...or low pressure never seemed to be a trigger for me...but a swift CHANGE...oh yeah. First noticed  that I frequently was wearing sun glasses on the way to O2 shop...after a long Seattle area
rain spell...then high baro pressure....

Plane trips...or mountain trips...usually not an issue....tis another strange riddle within the paradox that is CH....

Best

Jon

I've not had an issue with pressure changes causing CH even with the weather here in the NZ winter being pretty changeable plus lots of flying.

However for my migraines, pressure changes, especially a decrease with a weather front coming through is a strong trigger.

There are mobile phone apps that you can get which use the pressure sensor in most mobile phones that allow you to watch pressure changes where you are. This can be linked to your CHs (or migraines) so you can confirm a connection and use it to ensure that you're near abortives when it is likely to be required.

my neurologist suggested my weird cycle might be a barometric pressure related cycle....i dont know but can tell you that the current summer has been very hard for me and unusual  and that there have been a few hurricanes to deal with.  I live on the gulf coast and perhaps our pressure has modulated more than normal but i dont track it.  I remember that when Hurricane Katrina struck i had a terrible cycle.  so maybe there is some connection

Last year the barometric pressure changed in my area due to the El Ni˝o weather pattern.
Worst cycle I've ever had.
Nothing helped.
D3.
Oxygen.
6-7 hits a day for 4.5 months.
Pattern changed in the fall,CH's went away.
