Car heaters

  • By lilipenphon

    I’m not sure why but it seems like car and bus heaters trigger migraines in me. I’m totally fine with heaters in my house or in an office. Does anyone else experience this?

    Hi lilipenphon,

    Thank you for your question. I’ve not experienced this, but have discovered almost anything seems possible with migraine disease. I wonder if the air filters needs to be changed in the car and/or bus. I suspect, if an air filter keeps out potential odors and pollutants and needs a change, it could result in triggering a migraine attack. Allergens, and poor air quality can certainly trigger a migraine attack.

    Hopefully others will be in shortly to share their experiences with you.

    Nancy
