Barometric Pressure

I’m just starting to learn/see a pattern with my migraines and barometric pressure. It can last anywhere from 3 to 5 days. How does anyone else affected by the weather deal with it other then crying and going insane.

  1. For me getting Daith peircings helped with the barometric triggers...also there was a study done by the university of Cincinnati about lightning strikes, being within a few miles of someone, can also trigger migraines in some people, something to think about since during my tracking of my migraines did indicate that when lightning struck within 5 miles of the house I could feel the buildup to a migraine...

    1. Hi ,

      That study sounds fascinating! I'll have to look into that so I can learn a bit more about it. I'm glad the daith piercing seems to be working well for you! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I second the app approach. I moved to the east coast (from the west coast mountains) about 10 years ago. I kept having un-relenting migraines and had no idea they were related to barometric pressure until I started talking about it with a fellow migraine sufferer, native to where we live. He pointed me to an app called WeatherX. It hasn't been 100%, but it's like 95% better than it used to be. I can see the ebbs and flow in pressure days in advance, see what triggers it and actually attempt to medicate ahead of time using notification thresholds.

    1. I recently read about the WeatherX app and earplugs from other migraineurs on this site. I went out and bought a pair for $11 at CVS and tried them right away. The difference is AMAZING! I would encourage the folks who just use the app to also try the earplugs, as it's made a tremendous difference in addressing barometric pressure headaches. In face, since I can sense the change, I don't even use the app anymore.

    2. I also meant to add that I saw a device called Zok on Amazon that had a number of good reviews. I plan to try this, as well.

  4. I was going to do research on my students behavior,but then I noticed the drop effected me as well.
