My husband and i just moved from a very warm, humid climate to a very dry, cold one. I began suffering from headaches almost immediately after we got here. I have never had migraines before just the occasional headache so this is all very new to me. I have a headache pretty close to everyday that is usually around a 4/5 on the pain scale. One or two days out of the week i have a really bad one (7/8) which i beleive is a migraine w no aura. I have seen my doctor twice now and she has treated me for sinus problems to no avail, had me keep a headache diary which she said showed no triggers and given me imitrex inj which didnt work and most recently midrin which isnt working. Ive scheduled another appt for this week but im somewhat confused. She hasnt diagnosed me with anything. I dont know if these are tension headaches, migraines, or some type of chronic daily headache. (ive done research. none of this information was provided to me by my physician which also worries me.) If anyone else is sufferering from anything similar or has any advice or pointers, it would be greatly appreciated. Also, does anyone know of any medication that might work? OTCs do nothing and everything prescibed to me so far hasnt worked. Im beginning to get frustrated!! mad

Hmm with a climate change I'd almost bet allergies. Perhaps some benedryl, otc allergy migraine and caffine pills will work. It does with me if I catch it early enough. However, I aint a doctor. Also, if she can't figure out, neurologists are a da ones to go to
