Barometric Pressure related Allergies -Remedies?
Hey All,

Since I became an adult I've had two yearly visits from a nasty bout with sinuses (runs into lungs, cough for a month after, pressure, etc.)

I had myself tested, found a few mild to moderate allergies to tree pollens, etc. But, no matter how many high priced products I tried, these two eventual sinus infections returned like clockwork: Winter to Spring and Fall to Winter. Of course there are some allergens floating around during these times, so I didn't think much of it. Then I stopped paying money and started paying attention:

When these things strike, allergy medicines won't lift a finger to help. It's as if I'm not really suffering allergies at all, but something that seems like allergies.

So I did some googling today and found Barometric Pressure Allergies. This makes sense. This is exactly what I'm experiencing (likely spurred onward by mild allergies to pollens, etc.)

I figured my GLP friends likely had some insights in how best to treat this problem and so here I am asking. Anybody else suffering this? Any reliable remedies?

hf
Thanks everyone!

Oh wow! Thank you!

I've always joked that I'm allergic to the seasons changing. Every spring and fall, same thing. Have never been able to figure out the exact allergy. I live in Hawaii so, everything is blooming and pollinating year round. I too have tried every over the counter allergy medicine with no luck. All they do is make me feel weird.

Been really intense this past week. I spent one whole day sneezing so hard and so much that my ribs ache!

Now that I know what most likely is causing it, I can start searching for a remedy too!

This has been a very motivated study of mine for 20-years now! LOL Yeah, I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed but I think I'm finally onto something.

I found a website where you can view historical data for weather by city. [link to www.timeanddate.com]

Hopefully this can help you too!

I used to think it was simply seasonal changes that got me as well, but in Kentucky we can have a 20-30 degree shift and it have no effect on me at all. And so I figure there's something else involved.

Using the site above, I found that we had a .50 change in pressures last Tuesday (around the time my problems began). Unfortunately I don't know if that's a massive change or if its tiny and not the 'smoking gun' I'm looking for. LOL

Yes I get this I had no idea it existed I was wondering about it though because I felt the pressures change first.
And it usually coincides with a change in season.

likewise..... it just never made sense to be allergenic. You could see the front move in and feel your nose just 'let go'.

Yes. I experience this every time there is a change in atmosphere pressure. Throats swells up sinus problem

I don't know of any remedy though.

Re: Barometric Pressure related Allergies -Remedies?
When you sneeze, the intrathoracic pressure in your body momentarily increases. This will decrease the blood flow back to the heart. The heart compensates for this by changing its regular heart beat momentarily to adjust. However, the electrical activity of the heart does not stop during the sneeze.

[link to uamshealth.com]

In physiology, intrapleural pressure (also called intrathoracic pressure) refers to the pressure within the pleural cavity. Normally, the pressure within the pleural cavity is slightly less than the atmospheric pressure, in what is known as negative pressure.[1] When the pleural cavity is damaged/ruptured and the intrapleural pressure becomes equal to or exceeds the atmospheric pressure, pneumothorax may ensue.

Intrapleural pressure depends on the ventilation phase, atmospheric pressure, and the volume of the intrapleural cavity.[2]

At rest we have a negative intrapleural pressure. This gives us a transpulmonary pressure expanding the lungs. Intrapleural pressure is sub-atmospheric. This is due to the recoil of the chest and lungs away from each other.

 Quoting: ByFaithAlone


Yes. Seems like a normal sinusitis. Headache, Stuffy Nose, Runny Nose, sinus pressure et al.

Let me add though: The various drugs and treatments for it are mostly ineffective.

I just used a neti pot - but I knew it was pointless as I don't have a stuffy nose right now.

That's an experience btw... a neti pot.... in a word: WOOOOOO!
