Weather as a trigger

Post by Tee on Tue Dec 13, 2011 6:08 am

The weather is a known trigger in many migrainers - although a few studies have not proved this - I know of many who can tell when a storm is coming or even an earthquake...

Do you have weather as a trigger - and if so - what kind and how to you deal with it - weather is one of those triggers which is hard to avoid - so what do you do?

I never used to think so, but my last two migraines have coincided with big weather changes: hot to cool and dull to sunny.

I'm curious.

I think I have fewer migraines in winter. Heat is a trigger, you see. I don't like it and it doesn't like me.

I feel I suffer less from migraines in winter. I'm not sure whether they are less severe, occur less frequently, or simply because I prefer winter. Or perhaps a combination of all three. I actually find storms exhilarating - the worse it is the better I feel.

All I can be sure of is that I feel less bothered by migraines from about late May to around early/mid September.

I've just stumbled upon a site that predicts how the weather might affect migraineurs. For example here are the predictions for my home town.

I've had a look around the site but I can't find any mention of what they base their predictions on. Has anyone any idea? I only found the site yesterday so it's too early to say if it will be of any use, but I'll follow it up for a few weeks to see if it has any relationship my migraines.

I've been keeping an eye on the AccuWeather.com site, and there does seem to be some relationship between their predictions and my migraines. For example it predicts that today is potentially a "Migraine Headache" day, and although I don't have a migraine at the moment, I have a number of the symptoms I usually notice in the day or so before one strikes. It predicts the nest 3 days as "Beneficial
weather for migraines", so I'm hoping for a good New Year Cool

This is interesting - it it based on air pressure?

(I know a few people in the USA whom can predict an earthquake coming just from mig symptoms)

I have used the Accuweather site but have not found any correlation to my migraines.

I can't find anything on their website that indicates how they make their predictions.
Having observed their predictions foe nearly 2 months now, I am less certain that their predictions are as useful to me as I first thought. However, I'll monitor it for a while longer yet, before ant decision about abandoning it occurs.

Hi there,
i find that I have more migraines in the Summer and also when it snows!! luckily here in the UK we dont get that much snow but i can always tell when any type of storm (snow or thunder) is coming!! it must have something to do with the air pressure and humidity!!!

Hi,

As posted elsewhere.........earthquakes. Been studying this phenomenon for a couple of years now, I get a nasty sudden onset overnight, (sometimes daytime) migraine, a few hours later, an earthquake over 6.5 will occur somewhere in the world.

The has been anomalies, large quakes that don't affect me, or big migraine events that aren't followed by quakes..........but its more than likely that if I get the overnighter, then thats almost a guarantee an earthquake will follow.

My most recent predictions were

Migraine started 04.30am 13/05/2013
Earthquake 00.30am 14/05/2013
M6.8 - 39km W of Agrihan, Northern Mariana Islands

Migraine started 01.30 - 02.30am 11/05/2013
Earthquake 20.46pm 11/05/2013
M6.5 - 139km NW of Neiafu, Tonga

And while the Tonga quake was going there was a lot of aftershocking, the pain lasted for hours, but the Mariana quake was a single shock and my pain was short lived (3 hours) though intense.

I wish I could be more focused and be able to pinpoint a location, maybe I could save lives too. But thats what is happening to me, and all I can do is hope that the seismic events don't get too bad or I might be in for a painful time of it !

How interesting (and painful for you)! You must be super-sensitive.
