Some people may blame their headaches and migraines on common everyday annoyances, but Dr. David Agnew, a Santa Barbara neurologist and pain medicine specialist, believes barometric pressures may be at fault.
Dr. David Agnew encourages the use of preventative measures and medicine to keep migraine headaches at bay. “If you can identify what causes your headaches, we can take these preventative measures and make sure it doesn’t spread and get out of hand,” he says. (Nick St.Oegger / Noozhawk file photo)
Having observed a number of patients with heightened sensitivity to weather changes, Agnew developed a theory that changes in weather patterns may create conditions that make some people more prone to migraines.
