have you ever had a problem when the barometer pressure drops from rain storms

Hi am wondering if you have ever felt strange when there is a storm brewing.  Such as we have in Fl. a topical  storm this weekend.  When the barometric  pressure  drops.  I have been feeling an unease.  It is hard to explain.

  Is this from the pacemaker or something else.?  Have been drinking more water.  Seem to be more tired and not sleeping well this weekend.

Weather changes

I can't say I've had any new problems with barometric changes.  As we get older, and due to injuries and body changes, you can be more aware of barometric changes.  That's not necessarily due to the pacemaker itself, but due just to changes in your body.  You might be one of those body types who are more sensitive to barometric changes but it isn't necessarily due to having the pacemaker.  

I've got some old injuries that bother me prior to a big storm coming in, but not in the pacemaker area.

Weather Barometers, We Are........

Hi New To Pace,

From your biography I see you're located about 40 miles north of me, so I'm experiencing the same barometric pressure and other weather changes you are. And yes indeed, my bones ( where they've been broken in my life) and my sinuses let me know when things are going down hill. I get aches mainly in the left 5th metatarsal bone that was broken twice, and in my right wrist, that was broken last year ( my "weather" wrist, I call it). The pressure changes in my sinuses may cause a big time headache, but it helps to take a decongestant.

I don't think my pacemaker is affected at all.

thanks Marybird looks like this storm is moving away from us.  should feel better hopefully in the monrning. 

Since do not hear   with my left ear will be able to sleep through the thunderstorms.  As i sleep with my deaf ear up.   Which is good, means do not sleep on pacemaker.

I've always had a headache when a storm is coming, my daughters are the same.

i think we become more aware as we get older.

Blue skies smilin' at me

Being sensitive to changes in barometric pressure is not uncommon. Many people feel edgy when a storm coming on, and most everyone feels especially good on low humidity, high pressure days when the sky is clear blue.

I myself am sensitive and have noticed a general achiness and low spirits even when a tropical storm is still several hundred miles away.

Doesn't have anything to do with the pacemaker---though now that you have a pacemaker, you may be more tuned in these days to subtle changes in how you feel.

no storm today headed to the west

I'm 35 and got my pacemaker a little over a year ago. It definitely is not a burden to me. In fact, I have more energy (which my husband enjoys), can do more things with my kids and have weight because of having the energy.
