Can Weather Impact Migraine?

Read Transcript

Surprisingly yes, and we don't exactly understand why that is. There're studies that support that, and certainly in my practice I see patients all the time who come to me and they say it's this anti-AM's[sp?], so my migraines are flaring up. Part of the problem with weather serving as a trigger is that it further supports this pseudo diagnosis for sinus headache, and for some reason people associate the weather and sinus disease which actually is not exactly clear to me why, but we suspect that there are weather changes worsen migraine because of the barometric changes, because we do see patients get migraines when they go on an airplane, or when they drive to high altitudes.
