Hey Gregg,

Living in Ireland the weather is famously changeable and consequently, so is the barometric pressure.

As a result I frequently suffer attacks (admittedly not too bad thanks to D3).

I have always believed there is a direct relationship between Cluster attacks and changes in barometric pressure.

Peter.

Yo Gregg,

High...or low pressure never seemed to be a trigger for me...but a swift CHANGE...oh yeah. First noticed  that I frequently was wearing sun glasses on the way to O2 shop...after a long Seattle area
rain spell...then high baro pressure....

Plane trips...or mountain trips...usually not an issue....tis another strange riddle within the paradox that is CH....

Best

Jon

I've not had an issue with pressure changes causing CH even with the weather here in the NZ winter being pretty changeable plus lots of flying.

However for my migraines, pressure changes, especially a decrease with a weather front coming through is a strong trigger.

There are mobile phone apps that you can get which use the pressure sensor in most mobile phones that allow you to watch pressure changes where you are. This can be linked to your CHs (or migraines) so you can confirm a connection and use it to ensure that you're near abortives when it is likely to be required.

my neurologist suggested my weird cycle might be a barometric pressure related cycle....i dont know but can tell you that the current summer has been very hard for me and unusual  and that there have been a few hurricanes to deal with.  I live on the gulf coast and perhaps our pressure has modulated more than normal but i dont track it.  I remember that when Hurricane Katrina struck i had a terrible cycle.  so maybe there is some connection

Last year the barometric pressure changed in my area due to the El Ni˝o weather pattern.
Worst cycle I've ever had.
Nothing helped.
D3.
Oxygen.
6-7 hits a day for 4.5 months.
Pattern changed in the fall,CH's went away.

I also for the first time have been noticing a severe uptick in hits when we have a weather front coming through. 

I dont ever really recall this from previous cycles, but this time around I am getting spanked up to 5 times a day leading up to the weather event, and then once the front passes I am far less frequent. 

Im in Minnesota and we arent really talking about a strong front this time of year either. 

Yesterday a small snow event passed through and it was a rough day, and now today I am doing really good. 

I am starting to keep a log of the barometric pressure changes and comparing it to the time and day of the hits to better track a correlation.

Have a great day,

Eric

The problem with weather triggers is that you can't do too much to avoid them, other than moving somewhere different.
