      I have noticed my T is worse with drastic weather changes or when the barometric pressure is high. Does anyone else have the same problem. My entire head fills up as soon as I walk outside and the pressure is horrible.

      Yep, absolutely. I have posted about it on here before, and there are others like us. I live in the tropics and can tell a storm is coming in before it appears on the horizon, because my ears start ringing as the pressure changes.

      Thanks! Makes me feel better I'm not losing it on top of the T! It's so hard to explain to people who don't have it and don't know what it feels or sounds like. It's been a horrible couple of days with the high barometric pressure and the crazy weather right now in NJ it doesn't look like its going to end soon either

      Yeah, it stinks, but what are we going to do? The weather is the weather. At least I know its something that will change soon, so I just pop in the masking noise and wait for the clouds to roll on by.

      Oh yes. As a matter of fact, I just came in to get some relief. It's cloudy and wants to snow.

      Just curious LadyDi....do your ears also feel "pressured" when the pressure changes as well? Or, does it only affect your T?

      Hi @Teri : Yes, sometimes my ears also will feel weird, like they are "full." Sometimes that fullness is related to weather, sometimes not.

      I have constant pressure in my ears...some days not noticeable other days it is. I have also been diagnosed with Meneires Disease. I was just curious if anyone without a Meneires diagnosis gets the same symptoms. Thanks.

      Hi @Teri: I have been told I do NOT have Meneires. But I also do not have constant fullness. Just occasional.

      And @Rina: I live in Florida, too. Atmospheric barometric pressure changes are crazy, crazy in the summer! But at least I know there will be relief when the weather changes.

      How do you cope with the thunderstorms in the summer?

      Hey @geg1992: Well, I listen to some masking noise if my tinnitus gets annoying -- I pretty much carry my masking device and ear phones with me everywhere this time of year. But honest, most days it isn't too bad. I will have had my tinnitus for two years at the end of this month and I have gotten used to these short spikes.

      I live in Georgia, and the weather affects my tinnitus, too. We have a lot of changes in barometric pressure, particularly in the summer months, and I can usually tell by the intensity of my tinnitus.

      The good news is, though, that the feeling of fullness in my ears has gone away. I had it for about four years, and it finally stopped. Why? I don't know!
