Hot weather a migraine 'trigger'

Post by Tee on Fri Apr 29, 2011 6:01 am


A hot day can spell bad news for migraine sufferers, increasing their risk of an attack the next day, US research suggests.

The risk went up by 7.5% for every five degree Celsius increase in temperature revealed the study of more than 7,000 patients, published in Neurology.

The same applied to people who suffer from non-migraine headaches too.

Although you can't alter the weather, people can watch the forecast and pop a pill to avert attacks, the authors say
