Low Pressure.


Recommended Posts

Just wondering if how other people are coping with all the low pressure lately.

My brain goes numb and gets worse as the pressure drops.

I’m sure I read someone describing themselves as a barometer head, that’s how I feel at the moment.

It is something we call "barometer head".  The lower the air pressure the worse the head feels.  Mine's banging right now and I'm 15 years into recovery.  It can be worrying but just remember, when the pressure lifts, so will the headache.

I've not heard the term Barometer Head before, but great description. I suffer a lot from low atmospheric pressure, not headaches as such but a basic inability to concentrate or function normally that I think is related to small changes in shunt pressure - I'm probably wrong about this....

 

Strangely, while all this is going on I'm slightly less deaf thank usual !

I was so reassured to read this, I'd noticed in the summer that my head hurt when it was stormy but put this down to the humidity not the air pressure but the last week has been a headache week and I hadn't connected it to the weather until reading this.

Today has been better but still windy here in Norfolk as well as wet/sleety.

Hope everyone else is doing ok?

Get a lovely collection of hats is my answer, especially for windy wet weather, it seems to swirl the neurons less.

 

but barometer head is real that’s for sure and a fast drop in pressure will bring on the head fog !
