Can hot weather cause migraines even if I keep hydrated? Where I live, when it got into week 2 of 110+ degree heat, my migraines started. I drink lots and LOTS of water. Happens every summer. My usual meds don't help. Joanne.
The short answer is yes. For some Migraineurs, even being in a room that's too warm, can trigger a Migraine in the middle of the winter.
