It is so hard to tell at this time of year if the increase in headaches is due to the change in the weather, the barometer changes, the increased pollen and/or the Daylight Savings Time change.
This week I believe that it has been a combination of all of these things and my body’s inability to respond to all at once in recent weeks that has my head bouncing around.
So for now I’m focusing on keeping the indoor air filters on while becoming more vigilant about sleep management. I’ve set alarms on my phone to remind me to begin the night time bedtime routine at the same time each night as well as to get up at the same time each day.
As for changing weather and barometer that I cannot control, I am continuing to dress in layers.
What are you doing to cope with headaches? Are you also experiencing more right now? What do you think the reasons are?
Changing temperatures, whether from a warm summer easing into chilly autumn or cold winter temperatures climbing into a mild spring, can be a trigger for people with migraine.There are plenty of factors you deal with every day that can also influence this condition, like how well you sleep, what you eat and how stressed you are. Take note of each pain you have, when it happened, how long it lasted, and what could have triggered it. This can help you pick up on any patterns you otherwise might not have noticed. Also, find a specialist doctor who can test your condition and help you in the best way.
