I am in my 50's and have been lucky enough to be able to old enough to pay attention to my body and how it changes and what happens and when it changes. I notice that when the weather changes, the day before it changes I get either dizzy or tired or feel like I am going to be really sick. It usually is followed with a sinus headache. Sometimes, half of the time I wake up with them.
I am a seizure patient so I am already on Topomax 1200 mg a day which helps me not get the migrains that I used to have, but that is not why I am on Topomax, I am on that medication for seizure control. Now that I am older, it seems like the dizziness is worse to where on some days I slurr my words as well as not be able to read, and that is before a headache is even there.
Is there something that I need to be concerned about??
i get deep sinus pressure and dizziness (not vertigo) daily but when the weather is about to change it all gets worse. the dizziness feels like im on a boat kinda bobbing up and down and to the side a little and everything in front of me seems to be in slight motion. it gets spooky. my doctor says i dont have allergies or an infection, just swollen sinuses. she thinks the post nasal drip is causing the dizziness because its clogging my eustachian tube. i also read a legit article that linked migraines to weather changes. it must be the air pressure. some people are really sensitive to it i guess.
