So I live in Lone Pine Ca. Right underneath Mt. Whitney at about 3,700 ft. I worked all spring and summer long up in the mountains. I recently finished working on the 16th of September. The night of my first day off I felt this migraine come on, this happened for the next few days until I went back up to give my boss my uniforms. I never have experienced these type of headaches before well not this frequent I guess. I took a two week vacation up to Reno and Tahoe. I have a slight clue that the cause to these migraines is that I am no longer traveling up and down the mountain as I did every day for the last seven months.
Can someone please ease my mind on this?….(headache pun)
While I was in Tahoe for two days I didn’t feel the throbbing.
Wonder if the altitude has a big factor in this. So any help would be greatly appreciated.
I’m sure the elevation has everything to do with it!! I live in tucson, az now and have suffered through their monsoon season every year-(the pressure going up and down)-finally see a neurologist after self-medicating w/3 aleve and coffee every 3 hours for about 15 years!!
Whenever i travel to calif to see friends (by car OR air) i get a migraine–now i take a pre-emptive before/during the flight. I used to miss out on all the family festivities during holidays–the first night i’d be stuck in the bedroom in throbbing pain!
I strongly suggest you visit a specialist for this problem–they will be able to figure something out for you. Unfortunately they don’t have the magic wand i was personally hoping for, but my doctor is trying to figure things out for me. Good luck.
