8/6/07 #9 - What part of the country is best for Migraines/pain?

Ask the Clinician Health Pro
  • Full Question:

    I am currently unemployed and am willing to relocate for my next position. My wife suffers from migraines (as well as arthritis and fibromyalgia). Statistically, what part of the country (or type of weather) would be best for my wife's condition? Thanks, Jim.


    Dear Jim;

    If your wife has Migraines that are sensitive to barometric pressure changes, I might recommend the Las Vegas area as there is little rainfall. Same for many regions in the Southwest. Pain conditions also do somewhat better in this type of climate. I have patients who relocate to these areas in their worst seasonal Migraine/pain times.
