Cammy,

 

Is it that he gets a Migraine when he's outside in windy conditions or the changes in weather the Santa Anas bring with them?

 

If it's being hit by wind, a scarf to protech the head and maybe even across the nose and mouth plus sunglasses -- all to protect him from direct wind might help.

 

If it's the weather changes, some of us have been successful with taking Diamox as a preventive when we know a weather front is heading toward us.

 

Those are some options to discuss with his doctor.

 

Hope this helps,

Teri

I feel for him...I live in the mountains and it can get extremely windy. The pressure can cause headaches for me too. If I know ahead of time about the weather that day, I take a fleece ear band (kinda like ear muffs) with me. It helps a little.
