    yes and no really. My headaches are, but migraine is not. Thunderstorms are a good headache trigger for me. I suppose hot weather does, but they seem alot more intense.

  • Ashlie Oct 10, 2011

    Yes! Barometric changes wreak havoc with my head!

  • L. Welch Oct 10, 2011

    My headaches do seem to have some weather component. In summer they are MUCH worse. Hot, humid days with impending storms make my head hurt all over. These headaches often will not resolve with Imitrex. I have found that the best cure for these is a good old fashioned slushy.

  • TJ SINK Oct 10, 2011

    I can say weather definitely affects my migraines. In fact, with my friends and family it is kind of a joke. Because they say I am better than listening to the weather man, since I alway get a migraine anywhere from one to three days before it rains or snows. So I would love to win this migraine barometer. Thank you for your time reading this and I hope to hear from you soon saying I am the winner. ;o)

  • Terri Boe Oct 10, 2011

    Yes I get weather influenced migraines. Haven’t found anything to help. The best thing I have found is anti-inflamatories.

  • Kim G Oct 10, 2011

    I KNOW my migraines are influenced by the weather–especially when we have thunderstorms here, mine are horrible.

  • ChrisTopher Cooper Oct 10, 2011

    Migraines….

  • Carol Ann Oct 10, 2011

    This is interesting..I’d like one

  • Sharon Oct 10, 2011

    I firmly believe that the weather effects my migraines. I can feel the storm fronts and pressure changes before they happen.

  • Nia Oct 10, 2011

    Whenever the weather changes drastically I tend to get a migraine. It’s really frustrating. Would love to have something like this to help me predict when an attack is going to happen

  • Phyllis Oct 10, 2011

    I would love to win. I love your blog and FB page. The tip that you posted about keeping my head cool at night has changed my life so thank you so very much for all that you do.

  • David Roman Oct 10, 2011

    Indeed, for me, the weather plays a very important and nasty role in my migraine headache, especially in the summer, when thunderstorms are more frequent. Almost no migraine in cool, dry temperatures.

  • NInne Oct 10, 2011

    Yes, I have, and it would be interesting to have a migrene barometer! :)

  • Tracy Dillman Oct 11, 2011

    No, mine are almost purely due to hormones. :/

  • Debi Oct 11, 2011

    I DO feel they are caused by or worsened by barometric changes… both my teenaged son, my sister and I suffer migraines with weather changes… from us in Japan to my sister in North Carolina!!

  • Jennifer Armstrong Oct 11, 2011

    Yes, I do! This is the time of year for me to get migraines.

  • kristen maggiano gaves Oct 11, 2011

    My husband suffers severely with change of barometric pressure. He has even been hospitalized once. His migraine woke him up out of a sound sleep and he was in so much pain he couldn’t take his rescue meds due to nausea and vomiting from the migraine. It was caused from a drastic change in barometric pressure, if he could known earlier and taken his meds it could have been prevented.

  • cheri voigt Oct 11, 2011

    Sometimes….It seems that my migraines are more frequent when it’s hotter outside and humid.

  • Cindy Graff Oct 11, 2011

    yes I believe weather has a lot to do with my migraines.

  • Holly Oct 11, 2011

    I am already subscribed via e-mail and would love to win a migraine barometer-I’ve had migraines for over 17 years.

  • Alissa Oct 11, 2011

    There are no “instructions below” yet, so hopefully leaving a random comment is enough to enter.

  • Jodi Oct 11, 2011

    I know I have migraines because of the weather. I can usually predict when a weather change is coming on a day or two in advance because of the pressure change in my head.

  • L. Boyce Oct 11, 2011

    I believe that weather does contribute to some of my migraines.

  • Susie Moyik Oct 11, 2011

    I definitely feel that the weather is a HUGE factor in my migaine suffering. Humidity definitely is a trigger, but barometric changes are the worst… My husband is a pharmcist and some days he’ll come home from work to find me in excruciating pain and he’ll say, “I knew you’d have a migraine today because my three worst migraine customers all came in desperately needing their medicine.” It’s always on days when there’s been a swing in barometric pressure. Unfortunately when those types of migraines hit, pretty much NONE of my meds or my tried & true remedies work. I just have to ride it out, sometimes for a couple of days. :o(

    • Susie Moyik Oct 11, 2011

      That was supposed to be a frowny face above. Not sure why it came out the way it did!

  • Melinda Wagner Oct 11, 2011

    I”m 43 yrs. old and suffer from debilitating migraines every day and am learning more and more about them all the time. I am stuck home alot of the time because of my headaches and could really use this barometer,as many are related as well as my severe arthritis. I am so thankful for the good information provided here, thank you for this opportunity. I could never afford any thing like this Your work is appreciated.

  • Sherry L Oct 12, 2011

    Weather has a huge impact on my migraines. When the barometric pressure is high or changes rapidly, my head gets really bad. Also storms and strong wind trigger me.

  • Jamie Oct 12, 2011

    I think that weather affects my migraines, but I haven’t been able to pinpoint what weather changes impact the migraines the most. It would be great to be able to have a tool to help me figure this out, and take action before “reaching the point of no return.”

  • Julie Oct 12, 2011

    I’m not sure if my migraine attacks are weather related but I also have Fibromyalgia and I’m pretty sure that those flares are weather related and this could be helpful for those.

  • Machelle Oct 12, 2011

    Had a horrible headache today….this would have been helpful for me!

  • jimmy colon Oct 12, 2011

    i suffer from cluster headaches, and i say yes the weather does play a big part in my migraines because when it is hot they flare up more and when it’s cold they don’t….and there is no kind of treatment for it also.

  • Jennifer Bolden Oct 12, 2011

    thunderstorms usually give me migraines

  • Michelle Oct 12, 2011

    Barometric pressure is my biggest trigger by far (I’ve been a migraine sufferer since age 7) and I had no idea this product even existed. Awesome!

  • Jay Pastor Oct 13, 2011

    Seems that my migranes show up more in moist cool weather….but then again I get them regardless of the weather.

  • Elizabeth E Oct 15, 2011

    Yes, the weather is my biggest migraine trigger. When the weather is bad or changing, my head is always worse. People ask me if it will be raining tomorrow!

  • Jennifer Oct 15, 2011

    I have a horrible headache today….this would have been helpful for me! I also get blinding migraines so it would help to have any defensive mechanism for these horrible things!!

  • Jennifer Oct 15, 2011

    Yes, I do! This time of year is the worst!

  • Jennifer Oct 15, 2011

    Yes..weather has a huge impact for pain. I suffer from arthritis and Fibromyalgia as well and I am better at predicting weather than the actual weatherman!

  • Elizabeth E Oct 15, 2011

    FYI – I commented, shared, posted to my wall, sent to friends, liked all pages, etc. and it still says that I only have one entry. I’m not sure if this is a glitch or takes some time to tally? Anyway, this looks like a great product and I would love to try it, thanks!

  • Rae Oct 15, 2011

    It seems mine are partially brought on by allergies, but a change in weather also triggers a lesser migraine.

  • Jenn Oct 15, 2011

    Oh lord I hope… I have a horrible time, especially this time of year.. rain, sun, rain, clouds, rain.. I just die!! What a great thing!

    My first migraine I remember with clarity was in 2nd grade and I got in trouble because no one believed it was me… and it wasn’t my first if I recal.. just the first one I remember in detail…. been a road!

  • Jessica Oct 15, 2011

    I definitely think my headaches are influenced by weather, especially heat. I’m unsure how barometric changes affect them.

  • Pamela Oct 15, 2011

    Weather is a trigger for my migraines, although I’m not sure which weather events trigger them. I’ve been trying to get better by journaling.

    Weather isn’t my only trigger though. Too much or too little caffeine, aspertame, sodium nitrate, msg….

    I got my first migraine when I was 4 after waking up from a nap, so I refused to take naps after that – much to my mother’s displeasure! Wasn’t diagnosed until I was 18. When I was 22, I started getting them every day. Four years later, I was down to 4 per week after finding out I had hypothyroidism. Now, I’m getting better – about 2 per week on average. It’s a continuing battle!

  • HeIdi Oct 15, 2011

    My migraines are definitely affected by the weather. In particular, failing barometric pressure.

  • Debra Oct 15, 2011

    Weather is a big trigger for my migraines. Heat and humidity is horrible, when storms are approaching its as if a storm is also approaching in my head.

  • Nancy Roe Oct 15, 2011

    Changes in the weather such as the barometric pressure DEFINITELY play a role in my migraines. Seems as though I can almost predict the weather by the way my head feels:) I love your website and would love to win one of the migraine barometers. Thanks so much for all the great information here!

  • Lesley Oct 15, 2011

    Hot humid weather can set off my migraines.

  • Robin Homsey-Blaine Oct 15, 2011

    i suffer from complicated migraines. when i get one /6 times a month they often result in tia’s. i have also had 6 full ischemic strokes due to migraines. i have never looked at barometric pressure being a precursor to my migraines but i will start paying attention from this point forward. would love to win one of these monitors.

  • Linda Oct 15, 2011

    weather changes always bring on my migraines. My sister has major spine problems and when she has lots of pain, I usually have my migraine and its always when the weather changes drastically..

  • Christine Oct 15, 2011

    This would be incredibly useful.

  • cat Oct 15, 2011

    no doubts at all the weather is my hugest trigger

  • Natalie Oct 15, 2011

    Thank goodness other people are recognising weather migraines! Mine come with large barometric changes, up or down, and also with hot weather – I get low blood sugar ones, too, which probably exacerbate the hot weather ones as I don’t eat when it’s too hot. Makes it all a bit of a misery in summer, being allergic to strong UV as well. :s Ho hum. The change is just starting and I really hope I grow out of them the way I’ve grown into them. :(

  • kelly buck Oct 15, 2011

    My worst triggers are weather related, and unfortunately mine seem.to be ANY change in barometric pressure, so it has to remain.rather steady over several days not. To present a problem. The most severe remains a sudden drop though, and I can always tell my by head or by my aura the intensity of an incoming storm. I could never live somewhere hurricane prone, and temperature drops get me as well.

  • Jocelyn Oct 15, 2011

    My migraine attacks are definitely affected by the weather which is unfortunate as it’s something I have absolutely no control over.

  • Deb Ellenberger Oct 15, 2011

    Yes! Barometric changes wreak havoc with my head!

  • ana segura Oct 15, 2011

    not really, I think I get them from stress.

  • Sheena Oct 16, 2011

    My biggest trigger is the weather. I’d love to have the migraine barometer so I can have a better idea when a migraine may be coming so I can be more proactive instead of reactive!

  • Jamie Oct 16, 2011

    I’m still trying to figure it out. I think it’s a certain amount of change. Sometimes it’s a trigger, sometimes not. I’m working with Drs now to try to figure things out because I can’t take much more :(

  • Amy Oct 16, 2011

    Barometric pressure dips and climbs like a roller coaster here in the Midwest… I could really use this! Thanks for offering the contest to your readers.

  • Candi Malburg Oct 16, 2011

    I wish I knew what was causing my migraines. It seems they happen a lot when it’s about to rain, but sometimes with no rhyme or reason. I am hoping something like this migraine barometer, it might help me to track down the cause.

  • Marlene Oct 16, 2011

    I almost feel quilty for wanting to have a chance at winning this new form of telling me if my chances are good or not that my head is going to throb and that, along with that, my chances are pretty good at getting nauseated. Now we all know what is likely to happen to top this episode of insanity off…the heaves.
    There are so many like me, similar to me, and even worse than me.
    Yes, please enter my name. I would like a chance at winning so that I may have a few extra hours of comfort. And, best wishes to all in getting some help.

    Thank you!

  • Shelley Oct 18, 2011

    I have never thought about the weather affecting my migraines, but I guess it is possible.

  • Nancy Oct 23, 2011

    Fluctuations in barometric pressure can play havoc on Migraineurs. It would be great to have a tool to help predict even one Migraine attack for some who are affected by changes in weather patterns.

  • Maureen Oct 23, 2011

    I have a migraine barometer (new, never opened). Is anyone interested in purchasing?

  • Jade Jun 9, 2012

    Ive been suffering with migraines all my life, in my younger years they were typically triggered by my menstrual cycle, or sometimes eating too much chocolate or cheese, even drinking lemonade would trigger one… but now days its all to do with the Low Pressure, i had a severe bout of migraines about a month or so back and my doctor gave me some pills called SUMATRIPTAN 50MG which in all honesty arent very effective, there is currently a Low Pressure system over the United Kingdom and im its victim yet again perhaps along with many more migraine sufferers!! im tired of these attacks because they literally floor me!! I want a quick fix that takes away all the violent symptoms and not just one or two symptoms… im so going to be buying one of those Migraine Barometers…… If any of you guys have any tips or advice that could help me in some miraculous way, it would be much aprieciated, Kind Regards Jade from Leicestershire UK
