Barometric Pressure....how Does It Affect You And Is There Anything You Can Do To Avoid Them?

Barometric Pressure....how Does It Affect You And Is There Anything You Can Do To Avoid Them?

My migraines are definitely triggered by the barometric pressure going down. It doesn't seem to bother me when it rises. I live in the Calgary, Alberta, Canada region and we have the worst BP changes in the country. Used to love the Chinooks over the mountains as it brings warmer weather but now that I have migraines, I dread them.

I can tell when the BP is going to change. I feel like I'd make a good weather lady..lol. I heard Bali stays at about 70 degrees. I would love to go to Bali..anyone in? We could all pitch in for a Mugraine free House!

Mary, BP is my #1 trigger 😔 Have you tried eliminating gluten from your diet? That has made my migraines less intense. When I find myself doubting that it helps, I have something decadent and find out that gluten = misery for me.

I have been semi joking to people for years that I am a human barometer. I'm almost 62 yrs. old & have had migraines since I was 11. One of the major contributing factors is the weather. When the barometric pressure is on its way down because of an oncoming storm approaching my migraines go up in intensity. I've tried everything & I mean everything!!! Nothing has helped me. Icepacks give small comfort. Totally disabled by this & life has grown so so small. It just sucks 😕 😪

I have this problem too. It is very hard to manage. Who needs a weather person my head tells me.

I know when the BP falls to 29.9 I’m a goner. I don’t think there’s anything you can do about it! I’ve relocated a few times but with climate change, there’s no predicting weather patterns anymore. Sucks.
