Weather as a trigger?

Post  Mini on Thu Nov 10, 2011 4:02 pm

We had few days of fog and rainy weather here in UK, and surely enough I keep waking up with migraine which is difficult to shake off.
I wonder if anyone else is affected by the weather changes, and if so what kind of weather is a migriane trigger for you

Yes, weather is a trigger for me also. When the barometer drops and there is a storm I am down, very reliably. I have not found a way to stop it, but all the normal measures, stay calm, hydrate... do help.

I will get a Bad Migraine when the weather clears up, it I avoided the headache during the poor weather. I still have to take care not to stop Taking care of myself, or the weather change will still get me.

I am really not sure what is the trigger, so much happens when the weather changes. I can go to high altitudes and not have an episode, but a little shift in the barometer will send me to bed.

I guess some day, I will figure that one out, sure are a lot of possible triggers aren't there!

Yes, I agree that there can be many triggers, Bill. I think migraine is often caused when several triggers come together.
You are so right that we need to take care, and that dehydriation is one of the most common triggers because we often forget to drink, expecially when we are busy or do not feel well.

Then there are smells, wrong food ingredients, bright lights, noises - no wonder our poor bodies respond with migraine. We are just extra sensitive, so we must try to avoid as many triggers as we can and take good care at all times.

The problem with weather is that this is the one trigger, that we cannot avoid.

Sometimes I really feel that weather is a trigger. If it's rainy and crappy outside - especially if it starts rather suddenly - I feel like I almost always will come down with a migraine. However, sometimes I question it, as I seem to almost always come down with a migraine anyway. I know for sure that certain times of year are worse for me, and that January-February seem to be my most pain free times (oh how I wish my most pain free times were when it's nice outside!).

I am looking forward to moving to a more consistent climate in a couple of years. My husband and I have about two more years that have to be committed to where we are and then I am hoping to move to a more desert-like area.

I do hope more consistent climate will bring your relief, shame you need to wait so long for the move.
I will definitely watch my head in January and February to see if is good time for me, as well.

I found that foggy weather with high humidity, storm and lightning, or very hot weather with birght sunshine are three kinds of weather that are almost certain to give me migraine.
Sadly there is not much that I can do about it, except to try to avoid more triggers at the same time, watching over my food, water intake and preventing stress.

Fighting migraine is never simple.

Weather never used to be a trigger for me until about a year ago. It doesnt matter what type of weather change, it affects me big time! Unfortunately I live in a climate that is up and down all the time!! Never seem to catch a break.
