  1. I have only noticed the problem when visiting/living in high altitudes in Ecuador, Columbia and now Mexico. In Ecuador I lived at 3,500m for 8 months and visited the doctor several times when I was there. No health conditions found and recommendation was to move downhill. I was told that some people get used to it, some are fine on arrival, some never do. Since then have tried to stay in the range 1,500-2,000m. I have been here in Puebla, MX, for 6 months with no issues at all. However the evening / night time rains started a few weeks ago (every night) and my night time breathing issues have returned. If the change in pressure is equal to 300m for 1" change in barometric pressure it could explain things. I am going to pack up and move this week to a place at 1,820m without the evening rains. Hopefully that helps.
  2. I don't think dryness is a problem. etudiant - using your example at 2,000m atmospheric pressure is down from 30" at sea level to 24". So for every meter in elevation the pressure reduces by 0.003" Based on your range of 29-30.5"; it could drop by 1". So for a 1" drop, the equivalent change in altitide is 333m which puts me at an equivalent 2,333m or about 16% above my actual elevation. The actual elevation is not important only that the change is significant enough for me to notice and 300m might be. I should find somewhere at 1,700m to suit all seasons. any sense to this thinking ?
  3. I have a problem breathing/sleeping at altitude and so have to limit my travel to places of 2,000m or less. I have been at this current location for several months with no problems. However over the last few weeks the rains and cloudy condition have started and my breathing problems are back. So want to establish that my altitude limit is 2,000m on sunny months and maybe? 1,950m on rainy months. So can anyone tell me, what the rough average/ equivalant altitude effect is from the barometric reduction on a rainy day. I have tried to calculate but getting all confused with pa and bars and mm Hg etc. Hope thats clear.
