I have suffered from migraines without aura for most of my life. I recently moved from Wisconsin to Arizona and had a substantial increase in migraines during the recent monsoon season. There is an excessive amount of lightning, which strikes the ground repeatedly during storms, and thunder as well. The barometric pressure elevates to as much as 30.28 inches. Has there been any research that would indicate that lightning, thunder and elevated barometric pressure can affect the brain and trigger these migraines?
I use Imitrex® to abort my headaches, but take so many in the course of a week, I am concerned it will affect my heart. Is there anything I can do to avoid so many headaches, short of moving?
