    I have been allergy tested and I am very allergic to mould. In October water pressure caused pipe break and our floor still hasn’t been fixed so there is definitely mould under there.
    My migraines began to spike in November soI wouldn’t be surprised if there was a link

    You may consider getting an allergy panel. My parents were concerned that mold might be a problem for me, though they when I got my panel back, it came back negative. That means, even if my house had mold in it, it wouldn’t effect my migraines.

    Hi! Oh yes, I also experienced this. I used to have lots of allergies, including various molds, and would get severe migraines after being exposed to molds. I think there is a pretty significant connection between allergies and migraine, especially mold allergies and migraine. I would recommend allergy shots as they seemed to have helped me a lot. Hope this helps. 🙂

    There is a connection between migraines and allergies, and mold is a common allergen. I’m very allergic to several types of mold. Whenever I’m around mold I am more likely to get a migraine on top of my allergy symptoms. My parents’ house had water damage that led to mold they didn’t know about and my allergies and migraines were horrible until they finally got rid of it. I won’t live in garden level apartments for that reason.
