Barometric changes can cause dizziness (vertigo) but usually that would happen only every few days when the pressure builds up, after some time that pressure would equilebrate.

In your case it has been going on for some time so we would need to consider Mennier's disease as one of the possible causes. In this scenario there is excess fluid building up in the inner ear structure causing vertigo that's more persistent.

It's quite treatable but in order to get the right diagnosis a physical exam would be needed.
