I'm very lucky in that the weather seems to make no difference to my migraines but for many it is one bugger of a trigger. Obviously mother nature, red in tooth and claw, is one trigger that can really not be controlled by medications or prevented with life style changes. Unless, however, you work out what type of weather triggers your migraines. And jump in a caravan and run away whenever that type of weather is forecast....

Another migraineur recently sent me this list of Top Migraine Hot Spots to live. It appears that, surprisingly, Connecticut has the fewest factors associated with migraines. Miami and Honolulu are also high on the same list. I feel that it is, perhaps, my duty to go and stay in these places, drinks cocktails and see how many migraines I get......

Where would you go?

  2. Actually urgent care in phoenix could help you out on this kind of concern cause they are quick-responders and their physicians are all experts and could even give you advise on how to avoid this from happening.

  3. Migraine can attack every time and any time, that’s why one must always know its first aid for early prevention. The hospice care services offers treatment for this sickness, they can help you overcome it.
