Hi Laura: Welcome. I am fairly new here also. I just want you to know that I understand what you are going through. My migraines seem to happen only because of weather. I still can't figure out if they happen when the pressure is high or low but it mainly seems that it is just any change in the barometric pressure (flying does the same thing to me). I have been fortunate in finding a neurologist who has been great in helping; however, I am sure that at some point he will get frustrated at just helping me medicate myself to keep the migraines at bay instead of being able to "fix" me. I believe he truly thinks that he can eventually "cure" me with some preventitive but after reading all that I have on this site, I am not convinced he will. I still think positive and have much hope. I would love if I could take my preventitives (Verapamil and Trileptal) every day and never need another thing for pain. That is my goal! But, I also hope that he will not give up on me after awile if those preventitves do not work 100% of the time.
Good luck to you and if you find any more information on the weather affecting us, please send it along.
