Does barometric pressure change do THIS?!

    the weirdest thing happened to me one weekend when I was home in bed in alot of pain, with the usual heavy head feeling, bad headache and body pains. I just happened to puff my cheeks out like a chipmunk, and when I did that, it was like there was fluid moving around in the area of my face by my ear. I massaged that area with my fingers, and felt like a mushy, squeaky fluid moving around. I can't explain it, but I was quite shocked. My ear and face feel fine, so I assumed it was a barometric pressure thing.

    Has anyone else had this happen?

    I had something like that, just as weird. I didn't even mention it to anyone. I felt like I had water in my ears, side of face. When I lay on my face, I could feel water moving when I sat up, in the ears area. I could also feel it when I shook my head around. I thought I had an ear infection. I did have aching of the ear about 2 weeks later and used sweet oil in it to help. Now I don't have the water feeling in my ears. But it is a weird feeling.
    I have always felt that barometric pressure, humidity play a big part in our fms pain and symptoms. I am worse whenthe humidity is highest, and the barometer changes.
    How about anyone else?
