I have heard chiari symptoms worsen with low barometric pressure and can Potentially get better with high barometric pressure. Is this true? Also does a change from low to high mess things up? I live in Seattle so it's always changing weather. I appreciate any input. Thanks
HI...I also have this issue...for some it may be excess CSF that is built up and the barometer adds to the pressure....and for others it is bcuz we have an obstruction of CSF....and then there r those of us that continue to have these issues as we have related conditions like EDS< or a syrinx, ICP, POTS...and weather seem to play a role in all of them.
