Barometric Pressure and Migraine

Weather changes can affect migraine symptoms. A new article in Medical News Today cites AMF in a discussion of barometric pressure headaches and migraine.

While research has yet to find a definitive link between weather fluctuations and headaches or migraine attacks, more than one-third of people with migraine claim weather changes have a noticeable impact on their symptoms.
 
Weather changes almost inevitably cause variations in atmospheric pressure, which can increase the likelihood of headache and migraine. A 2017 study demonstrated a positive association between the atmospheric pressure and the amount of migraine pain a person experiences.

Medical News Today delved into barometric pressure headaches and migraine in their latest article, which cites AMF data.
