Weather triggered Migraines - can we predict them?
Posted Aug 26 2008 12:31pm
For many of us, changes in the weather are a horrid Migraine trigger. Some doctors prescribe medications we
can take in hopes of preventing Migraines when we know a weather change
is coming. Even for those who don't take medications, it's helpful to
know that a potential trigger is coming so we can be more prepared. The
trick is knowing that weather change is on the way.
On the Weather Channel web site , a new tool is available that can help track what may be coming -- their Aches & Pains Forecast:
The Aches & Pains index forecasts the potential for
weather-related pain issues on a scale of 0 - 10. The index is
calculated using barometric pressure, absolutely humidity, chances of
precipitation, temperature, and wind.
the Weather Channel site, you can enter your zip code and save a page
customized to your needs. If you're planning to travel, you can enter
any zip code to check conditions at your destination.
well doe the Aches & Pains Forecast work? I don't know yet, but I
intend to use it and find out. Give it a try and let me know how it
works for you.
