Anyone Get Continuous Headaches from Exposure to AC/Cold Weather?

I get Continuous Headache on exposure to AC/Cold weather. No neurologist is aware of this over here. Can somebody help me how to cure this?

Symptoms:
1. Forehead chillness
2. Ears chillness
3. Palms of hand and leg chillness Headache starts immediately when all the above becomes chill and it is instant

More Chill = Faster Headache

P.S No aura, No vomiting, No nausea, No flashing of lights.

  1. Hi kumaresan,

    Thank you for your question. It's possible these things can be related to a migraine attack, but I would encourage you to seek out help from a medical professional.

    Heat can be a migraine attack trigger for some of us, so I imagine cold may be similar. Having said that, try wearing a hat, gloves and scarf and dress warmly when going on in the cold. I hope that helps. Please let me know,
    Nancy

    1. Yes this does happen to me. Not so much in air conditioning but in extreme cold. Two years ago on a trip to NYC the weather was really cold and windy. First day out I had to stop and buy a hat because I was hit hard with a terrible headache. It was like someone was driving a stake through my forehead. The hat did the trick. But I’ve watched more carefully now and it has happened several times since then. I always keep a hat (During winter) with me now. Being from the south I had little experience with this happening. And tho I am still in a moderate climate I did move farther north, within my state, and the winters are a little colder here.

      I have a new cold condition which just started called Renault’s disease. Happens when I get cold, especially hands. My finger tips loose all color, become extremely cold to touch, and sting like they are holding dry ice or something. Lasts anywhere from 20-30 minutes most times but can last longer. This can happen even in a cold air conditioned building or outside in cold weather.
