Hi Sherry! Welcome! i haven’t really even posted yet, so i’ll just say hi. i’m from tucson arizona and have been suffering a daily since the day after xmas, which is unusual for me, but i’m trying to get over myself!April 10, 2012 at 4:41 pm #1244
Hello All – I am from NYC and I have been having extremely bad headaches for the past six months. I have never been prone to headaches before, but about 6 months ago, I fell and hit my head and lost consciousness for about 20 minutes (fractured skull). I had all the tests run to check for brain bleeds and anything life threatening. I just recently had my 6 month checkup with my neurologist. I told him about the headaches and we began tracking them and noticed they occurred during weather changes, especially significant drops in Barometric Pressure. My doctor said there is nothing I can do and this may or may not ever go away. Have any of you had head trauma resulting in the same symptoms and what are some remedies you would recommend?
Thanks!April 18, 2012 at 5:13 pm #1245
I’m new too, and thank you for this information! I’ve seen so many doctors about this over the past 15 years, and been told it was an “old wive’s tale”. That in itself tells me it’s been around a long time.
All I knew was that I’d never had headaches until my neck started bothering me. I have had surgery and several procedures due to arthritis and cord compression. This ALWAYS happens when the barometric pressure drops under 29.8. I have a reader, and use it..and my neck always “knows”. I feel better laying down with a hot compress, but still am nauseated, suffer blood pressure spikes, and in pain..sometimes for days.
Last October, my spouse had to take me to the ER for the nausea, high blood pressure spike (197/117), and pain to the point of almost fainting. After hearing it was all in my head for over a decade (no pun intended, because this is NOT funny) , the ER doctor TOLD ME it was due to the weather. Yay, ER doc who reads latest information! I was given no blood pressure medication, and my blood pressure went down within 45 minutes. Now I’m wondering if this might not be a cause of TIAs, too. So, off to read how I can best hope to prevent more issues. Thank you site admins!

I kind of can’t believe I found this website. I’m from Kentucky and for as long as I can remember growing up, I’ve had headaches. It took a while before I started noticing they always got really bad when it started raining or a storm would move through. People never really understood why that would be..and honestly kind of thought I was crazy! I moved to Utah to go to college and my headaches completely stopped. It was amazing, when I used to get a headache at least twice a week, in Utah I would get them once every couple of months. I am sure it’s the dryness and higher pressure that is what keeps me from getting them there. I’m so glad there is a community out there that brings us together, because I have never met anyone before who gets these types of headaches and it’s really cool that I can prove to people that I am not crazy now!June 14, 2012 at 5:07 pm #1248
I’m Ramona from Minnesota and I am a migraine and barometric pressure headache sufferer. Am interested in learning more about others that have this.August 4, 2012 at 7:23 pm #1249
Hi, I too am a fellow headache sufferer and it comes and goes with the weather. It is nice to find a site that discusses what I always wonder about but no one around me can tell me what it is or what I can do. I have one as we speak, I felt it coming on yesterday and then this morning when I woke up, there is was. 🙁 I have taken an over the counter sinus medication and that made me sleep for a while, but now it is coming back. I have also been told to eat chocolate and something with caffeine. That sometimes helps and I understand why, those two foods/beverages tend to help expand the capillaries, whereas the headache is due to the contracting of the capillaries. Of the things I have already discussed here, what have you guys experienced? ThanksSeptember 2, 2012 at 12:16 pm #1250
Hello all, I am in NC and am very interested in learning more about the physiological effects of low barometric pressure. I have clients who suffer from headaches some of which could be weather related or a combination of skeletal perturbance and muscle dysfunction exacerbated by low barometric pressure. Any tips on what releives the pain or stops the HA would be great.January 15, 2013 at 4:30 pm #1253
Hello Everyone, I am from Ohio originally, in Southern California for 4 years and now in Chicago. I am so specific because these 3 regions have all had very different effects on my headaches. Chicago has been easily the worst place and we are thinking of moving back to California to get some relief. I have been keeping a diary and doing a lot of research on the historical barometric pressure data for this city and the constant large swings in the winter seem to be the culprit in my situation. Feel free to ask me any questions you may have as this has become an in depth study for me and I may have some of the same experiences you are having.October 27, 2014 at 7:13 pm #1256
Hello everyone, I currently live in Seattle, and just found this forum while trying to figure out what the current pressure is and why my head hurts. I’ve known about low pressure HA, but am currently “enjoying” a high pressure system – 29.5 mb Hg to 30.1 mb jump in 12 hours.

Did anyone find a medication to help with Migraines during weather changes?
I find Yoga is helping a lot.June 16, 2015 at 1:59 pm #1258
HI all, just found this site today. I recently went to the allergist to see why I was getting so many headaches throughout the year. The only thing I’m allergic to is dustmites, lol. But she did tell me I am one of many people that are affected by the change in the barometer. For me it doesn’t have to be storms, it can be gorgeous sunny weather. I assume it’s more about the pressure changing too soon. Hoping this forum and website can teach me how to avoid these headaches because I’m so tired of getting up with one every day. Look forward to reading your stories and replies. Anne
