As someone with a long, lamentable relationship with migraines, I can say with certainty that I have been ‘around the block’ with different migraine drugs. One such group of treatments, now considered a first line treatment for migraines, is the class of medications called the triptans.
One of the most interesting migraine triggers is the weather, which can produce sudden changes in your brain that produce severe migraines. Weather is actually one of the most commonly reported triggers for migraine sufferers. Seventy-five percent of people that suffer from migraines report that weather changes often precede their migraines – a significant amount.
A variety of weather conditions can trigger migraines, ranging from changes in humidity to sudden increases or decreases in temperature.
