Warm weather triggers migraines

Science has confirmed what many of us migraineurs already knew. I certainly get migrainey when the weather is super-hot and/or when I suddenly get overheated. I love warm weather but fear it when I know I can’t escape from it when necessary.

I know the migraine bloggers will be all over this, so I’ll be brief and give you some links:

    I live in Utah. And for the past 3 weeks I have received a migraine every day. It has been pretty hot. I have had migraines for over 13 yrs and I have tried everything to get rid of them.

    I suffer from migraines too. Have u tried Maxalt? I tried every perscribed medicine for migraines and then my dr perscribed Maxalt it disolves on ur tongue and it really does work! U should ask ur dr for a perscription n try it out if u havnt already. Hope u feel better Kerry. 🙂

    This is true for me in a sense. If my body temperature gets too high, I get the worse migraines of my life! I can be inside with the air conditioning on and get too warm doing housework and trigger a migraine. It has contributed greatly to be becoming obese. What is a person supposed to do? If I can’t exercise without triggering a migraine, or even be somewhat active how do I stay healthy?

    Drowsiness and/or tissue pain on the onset of rapid barometric pressure drops is a sign of immune related inflammation of membranes mediating gas transport.
    Inflammation isolates tissue by cell swelling on the protien tissue skeleton. Barometric pressure changes further locks the dam. I recommend a food sensitive elimination diet. MOST doctors will not advise on treatment free cures. 3 Days of a immune clean diet will nearly eliminate all such symptoms. Some fish have good slime, some need tropical water.

    I just moved to Arizona and was doing fine for the first few months; however, I have been having quite a hard time with migraines since summer started…

    I guess I should be a snowbird!
