    I get Frequent sinus/migraine  Headaches, when the weather changes. During both of my pregnancy's they went away, I didn't have one headache the whole nine months with either child, as soon as i gave birth they started up again.   What caused them to go away?

    Hi rachel1121,


    We have a great answer to this question in our Ask the Clinician section of our site: Role of Hormones. I can tell you it has to do with fluctuating hormones. Let me know if you have more questions after you read that answer, ok?


    In more than 90% of cases, what people think are sinus headaches are actually Migraines. For more information on this, please take a look at Sinuses Giving You a Headache? It's Probably a Migraine.


    It's great that you know a few triggers. But unfortunately you can't avoid the weather! It might not be a bad idea to keep a Migraine diary to find out what others triggers you may have so you can  try to avoid them. There are a few ways to do this: "old school" paper and pen way and for that we have a diary you can download on our Migraine diary pageOr you can use your pc, laptop, iphone, ipod, ipad, smartphone or what have you. There are plenty of  apps out there. After you read our Migraine diary, you'll get an idea on what to look for in an app. It is a good idea to keep a diary for three months so you can see any patterns develop. Any Migraine specialist will ask you to do this, and really, if your Migraines are out of control now, this is a great way to start getting control. 

    What do you think?


    Good luck
