So in this wonderful world of MAV, I think I discovered a new trigger today… Wind.
I woke up this morning feeling like I had a bad hangover with chills, except I didn’t drink anything last night. I did eat pizza though, which is probably just as bad for someone with MAV
Anyway, the weather is nice today so I thought I’d go outside for a little walk… It’s quite windy and 2 minutes after i get out there, I immediately felt very lightheaded/drunk. I came inside ASAP and have been laying down ever since.
I read a few theories online explaining why this happens. Apparently, it is pretty common, even people who don’t have MAV sometimes suffer from this. One of the theories says that if you have any fluid in your middle ear, and you go outside in the wind (especially high wind), the wind can “cool” the fluid in your ear, causing you to feel dizzy/off balance, similar to how pouring cold (or hot) water in the ears can make you feel dizzy. Not sure if it has any merit to it, but it does kind of make sense.
Guess I better invest in a cute pair of ear muffs.
Was wondering if anyone else is affected by wind.
