 How to Cope With Weather-Induced Headaches

Are you prone to get headaches when the temperature changes? One of the most common causes of headache is the weather. Weather-induced headaches are triggered when there’s a change in the barometric pressure, bright sunlight, hot and cold temperatures, high humidity, dry air, and stormy or windy weather. The pain is characterized by a pounding sensation on the front and center of the head, especially around the sinus area.

Here are some tips to help you cope with weather-induced headaches:

  • Keep a journal of the weather-induced headache attacks and write down the date and time of the attack, and the symptoms you experienced so you can show it to your doctor. Also, invest in an accurate barometer so you can list down the exact weather conditions when the attack occurred.
  • Visit your doctor and ask for advice on what medication you can take during the attacks.
  • Take care of yourself. Live a healthy lifestyle by eating healthy, balanced meals, getting enough sleep, and practicing good posture. Taking care of yourself is a good way to avoid headaches.
  • Use a humidifier. A humidifier might help change the pressure in a room when you have weather-induced headaches. You can also try to open a window or go outside unless you notice the headache getting worse.

As the commercials always say, it is always best to consult a doctor if symptoms persist. Doctors may suggest procedures and tests to determine the exact cause of your headache and give you the best relief to alleviate your pain.
