Oh my gosh, this is the bain of my existance. Constant changes in weather have been giving me migraines for a long time. As soon as I feel that the weather is changing, I hit my abortive, Stadol Nasal spray. It is the only thing I have ever found that has the chance of warding off a migraine. The only bad part is when it happens during the night while I'm asleep, I'll wake up with a full-blown migraine. I also have the same problem with extreme temperature changes setting off an episode. I really sympathize with you. This usually ends up in a trip to the ER at least once a week. I can't wait for fall to come. Keep us updated on how you are doing.
I can tell the weather just like that also. Since your Imitrex isn't working for you anymore, I might suggest my abortive (STADOL NASAL SPRAY), which works great if I get that kind of lead time. It isn't much good, say, if you wake up with a full-blown migraine, but it is the bomb if you can catch it up front.
Just my experience,
Hello all, I am new to this site as my headaches are just getting to the point where I have to stay in bed for a full day. I really believe they are weather related. I am also per-menopausal (I think)! Anyway, where do I start? Can a dr really do anything for these, or do they just go away. They are really draining me monthly (also around my period). Thanks for any info.
Hi Cheryl, thanks for the info. I am seeing my doc in the morning; I will ask him re the meds. Do you feel better as soon as the storm starts? I do. It's like a feeling of relief instantly. I sometimes get dizziness and aura - everything but the migraine. Is this common? Thanks again, and hope you're feeling better.
