Rain and Migraine

October 14th 2014 16:42


Well, this is the second day of nonstop rain. I think it's going to keep raining until tomorrow. I can't wait because my chronic migraine pain level has gone up because of the rain. Weather changes really do a number on my head. It's hard to just act like it isn't there. I don't want to give into it. I am taking things a little bit easier so I don't make the pain worse.


I would go lay down if it would help, but it won't. This just depletes my energy.
If you find the weather is a trigger for you, find out what helps you. If it helps to lay down or go into a dark room, get to where it's quiet, do it.

Put yourself first when it comes to coping with migraine.

So, I read a couple of articles about having migraine in mid life, you may have Parkinson's later on or other movement disorders. Apparently there is new research which shows this. This makes me wonder. I have a sister with MS and has been diagnosed with Parkinson's. She had migraine attacks when she was younger. Not in mid life.


The study showed that if are a woman and have the aura prior to migraine, there is a higher chance of a link to Parkinson's.
We should emphasize that while the risk is increased for Parkinson's disease and these [similar] symptoms, they're still uncommon among those with migraine," said study author Ann Scher, a professor of epidemiology at Uniformed Services University in Bethesda, Md. "I don't think people should necessarily worry that if they have migraines, Parkinson's disease is [in their future]."

The research is published in the Sept. 17 online edition of the journal Neurology.

From Webmd.com
[The findings showed that those with migraine with aura at midlife were more than twice as likely to have been later diagnosed with Parkinson's than people with no headaches. Those with migraine with aura were 3.6 times as likely to report four of six parkinsonian symptoms, while those with migraine with no aura were 2.3 times more likely. Overall, the study found nearly 20 percent of those with migraine with aura had symptoms, compared to 12.6 percent of those with migraine with no aura and 7.5 percent of those with no headaches.

Both Parkinson's disease and restless legs syndrome involve a dysfunction in the brain chemical dopamine, Scher said, and migraine development is also thought to be associated with dopamine abnormalities. Future research should examine whether Parkinson's and migraine share genetic risk factors, she added.]

I need to keep this in mind as I have been having issues with my legs at night. Hope this info was helpful.

Weather Changes & Migraine

September 15th 2014 19:42


So, it's time for the seasons to change, which always does a number on my head as far as migraine pain. I have chronic migraine, so daily the level varies. For people who have never had migraine, most of my days would put them to bed. But for me, the average day with lower level pain, sure beats what I went through when I was home bound with migraine pain.

The weather changes always make me nervous. I get the needles and pins pain at the top of my head. I get very tired. I just do not feel well. I make sure I drink enough of water, get enough rest. Eat right. Try to keep my stress level down. It's all so important.

So, I have been really struggling with allergies this year. The weather has been back and forth with storms, then the sun is back out. I did have some relief last week when we had no storms come through, so that was much needed relief

June 12th 2014 16:22


So in a previous post gave tips on what to make sure you have on hand for summer time! I left a few important things out. Always have a pair of sunglasses with you. It is important to wear them in the daylight, even if it is cloudy outside. Wear them traveling in the car in the day, even if it is a short run
