Question Can weather change cause you to have a hard time communicating people with CI?

The weather has been changing A LOT, and everytime the weather changes my allergies act up, i notice i have a bit of a hard time trying to communicate with people. I lipread a lot, but I noticed that I had a bit of a hard time discriminating sounds. Sometimes with lipreading my eyes kind of gets tired from trying to communicate with them and end up having a hard time understanding them. Does anybody have problems understanding hearing people when the weather changes and your CI acts up from the weather? is that even possible?

Yes, it is possible. The following items affect how well I can understand speech:

Migraine headaches - sounds are louder
Ibuprofen/Naproxen - sounds are more clear
Zyrtec (allergy med) - sounds are quieter and less clear
Common cold - sounds are less clear
Common allergy attack - sounds are less clear
Fatigue - sounds are less clear


Talking with hearing people...they get similar results, but they still can hear speech better than we can.

From my experience with my Cochlear Implant-almost 5 years- haven't noticed a "weather change" in "hearing"-so far.
Don't "appear" to have any allergies.
