Good afternoon and Happy Friday Eve y’all! How are you feeling today? I really hope your week has been very pleasant and you are feeling as wonderful as you possibly can! Do any of you suffer from migraines and how do manage them? I have dealt with migraines/headaches since I was a child and still can not find a good way to control them. I guess I think they are something that is completely uncontrollable! The migraines/headaches I get way too often make it impossible to do anything at all. The only thing I can do is lay down in a dark and quiet room with one ice pack on my head and another at the base of my neck. This is just a miserable time!
There are several different types of weather related migraines, that you really can not control. Unfortunately we can not change the course of mother nature.
- Temperature Changes
- High Humidity
- High Winds
- Stormy Weather
- Extremely Dry Conditions
- Bright Lights and Sun Glares
- Barometric Pressure Changes
It has been painfully hot and humid where I live, which is only causing me LOTS of fatigue and terrible headaches/migraines. It is crazy how much barometric pressure impacts the way we feel. High or rising barometric pressure may indicate better weather and rising temperatures, but also increased humidity levels. High humidity is an extremely common trigger for a migraine to occur! Falling barometric pressure is a signal that storms are on their way. The more severe the storm is going to be, the more significant and rapid the changes will be. A complete change in pressure levels may only take a few minutes, but those that suffer with migraines/headaches will be among the first to know about the changes. Both high humidity and extremely dry conditions only exacerbate dehydration, which can and will cause additional migraines/headaches, which in only one reason why it is so important to drink plenty of water.
Being exposed to both bright lights or sun glares can activate something known as photophobia. Photophobia is a painful sensitivity to light and can create some massive headaches/migraines. Personally I have found that the fluorescent lights at work tend to be the main reason for many of my headaches. When I first got to work this morning all lights were turned off and I felt fine. About an hour later someone in my office decided we needed those horrible lights turn on and shortly after that my migraine started to ease into the place it felt it needed to be. I still do not believe the lights were necessary as we could see just fine with the nature light coming in through the windows!
