Does anyone get migraines during weather changes?

I often, well almost always, get a migraine when the weather changes, especially when the temperature drops or when it rains. Medicine often doesn't help. If this happens to you, how do you control or ease the pain?

I have had weather related migraines for years. Any sudden change in the barometric pressure will usually trgger a major migraine. My mom also had them, and she became the 'weather lady' that everyone called before they scheduled a trip to the beach, amusement park, family reunions! If she had a migraine, it WOULD rain! I don't get them as severely as she did, but when I do, usually ice pack works for me. Also, I am prescribed Topamax as preventative that I take every day and Sumatriptn at first sign of a migraine coming on. And taking Alprazolam (generic for Xanax) for the anxiety I have due to migraines.
Hope this helps!

My headaches tend to be weather related also. I use ice and go into my room and make it as dark as possible after taking my meds. If the ice doesn't work I try a heating pad. Sometimes I have to go back and forth between the two. Good luck!

Mine usually occur with weather changes too. I know for me its a dark room and a nap and when I get up I can sort of function even though I am in a fog.

I can almost predict when the weather changes, I will get a migraine. Being out in the sun can even throw me into a migraine. I Need to wear a hat when it is sunny outside.
