How Much Does The Weather Play A Role With Your Migraine

How Much Does The Weather Play A Role With Your Migraine

I can't believe how much better I feel now that the temperature has dropped. There also does not seem to be the big fluctuations in the temperature, humidity and barometric pressure. The thing that is still messing with my head is precipitation. I know the day before it's going to rain, then it rains and then it takes a day to feel better. That's three days out of my life. Weather migraines are really bad, anybody else have them? In sure lots of us do. Anyone know how to avoid or cope… read more

For almost 60 years I've had migraines. And I agree with what everyone said. I can tell a storm is coming 2 days before it arrives. As it gets closer then the barometric pressure drops, making my migraines so much worse!!! I feel terrible for days 😞.

I have migraines so often 13 a month. Last month was terrible for me and I recently started going to chiropractic but I still have migraines and I'm sure the weather and stress has a lot to do with it. I have depression also!!

For me the winter is worst. This spring 2021 has been awful. A sunny gorgeous day the day before weather actually changes. Here neat StL; weather baro pressure changes all day long. And over nite. Rain, humidity, cloud coverage, wind... it all plays a part. Im trying Propanlol as a beta preventer. So far no luck!
I feel like I did a few yrs ago in menopause. MARch; I had ep of 20 days and had migraines 10 out of those 20 days.
All diff times of day it hit snd coordinated w weather. Its not living.

Update: its been a week and NO migraines. Honestly it is freeing to be migraine free.
My neuro PA is feeling thr Propanlol is working. I did have to " double my original dosage" and I was fatigued and drained foe 3 wks. I do not feel like Propanlol is excercise savy as well as my Metoprolol. However. : Have any Dr explain when you switch any preventive; its gonna be 2+ months of increased headaches or in our case migraines.
I am absolutely thrown when we have to explain, eval, exain again any migraine. I always ask what " my Drs headache history is like"?
Its not lost on me how many times I've explained something to only have the next appt spent clarifying. Ways tell your Dr one migrsine is a 3 day hit.( believe it or not they don't always ask tbis)
We live on a jet stream so weather is up, down ,stormy, sunny then cloudy then windy.
Its like any non temperate situation is a brain storm fod moat of us. I spendt yrs NOT telling my Drs How incredibly I was in torture.
I am better but I fully expect after a season, I will once again have to change another treatment plan.
Just say how u feel, what works and what isnt!!
And never take no for an answer!!!
God bless everyone here.!!!

I've been charting migraines, atmospheric pressure and the number of times I quit breathing during the night (with C-PAP equipment) to see if there's any connection. There is definitely a relationship between migraines and the barometer dropping, for me. I knew I always felt worse when the wind started to blow!
