Does a change in the weather give you headaches?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Just wondering if I'm the only one. Rain is coming in and I've had a headache all day that just keeps getting worse! I probably should be resting my eyes right now...but you know how it is!!!

I'm going on day 4 of a low grade migraine
Our weather has just been weird, rain makes my back, hips and knee hurt though.

I can sympathize with you. Usually my headaches last 3 days or more. Last year I had one that last 8 days!!

YES!!! I have one right now!

No, you are not the only one!
I get headaches when the barometer drops.
A few years ago, we had a serious low pressure system come through and the barometer dropped REALLY fast...my head hurt so bad that I couldn't stand even the softest sound, and anything but a dark room hurt my eyes.
They don't last more than a day, but they are BAD.
Damp weather also makes my knees swell up and hurt.

I spent yesterday with a headache. I've had worse, but this was so persistant. Couple of cold fronts coming through our area.

If a front is bringing in rain, or there is a sudden cold front, yes. Something to do with my sinuses, so sinus medication usually helps me.

occasionally, but i get them from all kinds of things... my mom gets what she calls 'weather' headaches, usually when a front comes through [rain kind] we haven't had rain in so long, i don't remember for sure! i though Rita was going to bring us some, but she veered east

I was always looked upon as a real oddball, because I could always tell when rain was coming. It seems that I have low pressure headaches and fortunately, here in AZ, that does not bother me.

When I lived in New Hampshire, sometimes I would be awakened with the feeling that a knife was going through my head. Believe it not, when the pressure got so bad and nothing else would work, two beers would help open up the blood vessels in my head and help stop the pain.

If you want to end pressure headaches, come to AZ.

The change in the seasons trigger my alergies. Matter of fact I just got done with a nasty coughing attack and I was on the phone.

Yep. I get headaches from the low pressure when it's going to rain. My head's been pounding all day...and it's just getting gray now.

Strange, I just had a super sinus pain yesterday! Some sudafed helped out, but I don't like the way it makes me feel! I can't believe people actually take that stuff and make drugs out it!
post #14 of 22
Yep and I hate it! I get migraine like headaches when the weather changes sometimes. They are no fun!
post #15 of 22
I feel it more in my joints, specifically the ones I've injured or damaged in the past (my wrists and my left knee)
post #16 of 22
I don't get headaches.. but would be willing to bet I give them! My mood can get pretty nasty, pretty quickly when it's dark and raining out! Yucky weather usually means yucky mood for me.
post #17 of 22
I've always had problems with my left knee and hip, and a change in pressure leads to me limping for a day or three. I'm going to be one of those old women sat in a home saying 'I can feel it in me bones...'
post #18 of 22
nope. I get achy legs in a change of weather. Usually when it gets a bit colder and damper. I can't say I notice pressure changes unless there's an electrical storm coming. Even then my first warning is (usually something that should never happen to a girl in public) when the static builds up sufficiently.
post #19 of 22
I'm normally in a better mood when it's raining!

Is THAT what it is?? All this time I thought it was my hormones/stress/allergies.
I too had a migraine that lasted several days this past week. My daughter was complaining as well. I know my sinuses are part of the problem (it hurts to press into my eye sockets, to cough, to bend down). I'm glad I'm not the only one who has been plagued by headaches. Maybe it's a cat owner thing??

Have you tried the non-drying formula? (Aqua colored box & capsules). It has a different ingredient (Guaifenisen - sp?). It works much better (loosens up the stuff in your nose instead of drying it out). I find it has less side effects than the other kind. I also take one (instead of the recommended 2). Afrin spray works well too, but you can only use it 2 days at a time to prevent a rebound.

Yes, I have taken Guafenisen, too, but I think this works a wee bit better for this kind of problem. I HATE taking nose spray. I got addicted to it once (i.e. couldn't breath w/out it). It also made everything taste funny!
