Hi all,
Since childhood, I've gotten one or two migraines a year - a zig-zag aura followed by a mild/moderate headache with slight nausea. Over the past few years, I've gotten the aura with a slight headache or no headache at all. More often than not, the migraines occur in early fall. about a month ago, the weather here in NY suddenly turned fall-like for about a week, and I got several migraine auras with no headache or a slight headache over the course of that week. I also had a runny nose on the days the headaches occurred. I was concerned about the increase in migraine frequency, so I went to see my doctor, who ordered a CT scan that turned out to be normal. The weather warmed up and the auras disappeared for about three weeks. Then from Friday to yesterday, there was a significant drop in temperature and humidity, and I once again had a runny nose and migraine auras. I'm going to see an allergist next week, but I'm curious as to whether any of you have had migraines that appear to be allergy-related or weather-related, and whether there's anything I can do to prevent them. I've always had seasonal allergies, so I'm not sure why I'm suddenly getting more auras. My sinuses appeared clear on the CT scan.

weather related migraines are common
my partner says i am a better weather forecaster than the news...
more accurate!
they seem to have a distinctive feel... they come on suddenly as the pressure front changes, and seem to get my occipital areas and temples more too.
