Hey everyone,

Our weather has changed suddenly this afternoon. Temps went down within 20 mins and massive winds. UGGGGGGhhhhh!

I felt the pressure change right away and thought OMG here we go! I HATE this and the worst thing is nothing helps to stop that migraine! I hate it because I feel so completely helpless and now I'm wondering how the heck I'm going to manage to work.

I figured I'd walk my dogs before it got really cold and snowy, by the time I got my butt outside the "FLOATERS" started ugghhhhhh the prelude for me to a really nasty migraine. Right now it's in my eyeball and the back of my head my Occipital Neuralgia is in FULL SWING...... Too bad the botox didn't get me through the 3 months as my Neuro Doc had hoped it would grrrrrrr

I see my Neuro doctor on Nov. 19th for more injections......gawds I hate this.

Anybody else get migraines do to massive weather changes????? How you the rest of you actually manage to WORK with your Migraines??

Oh yeah! I don't get floaters or halos as warnings...I either wake up with them or I start with a little headache that turns into a massive migraine. Weather is a key factor in mine. Fall is the worst and the dropping baramoter. I finally broke down and started taking topomax 50mg daily as a preventive and it has helped then I take imitrex when I get a full blow migraine.

Scroll down to the migraine section.

Also, I think weather-triggered pain sufferers might be more likely to experience Seasonal Affective Disorder.

It would be worth it to you to monitor the weather closely an chart out a journal.That way if you can pinpoint a dramatic change in your headaches( like mine come on as soon as the barametric pressure drops), you can start taking your med BEFORE it changes.It is worth the time to journal them.Hope that helps!
