I To Have Headaches From Heat. It Doesn't Matter How Much Water I Drink, How Well I Cover My Head.

When I was young, I had a bad case of heat stroke. Since then, no matter how cool I dress, or how many breaks I take, the heat gives me a terrible headache. Does anybody know why this happens? Summer should be fun, but now any time I'm out in the heat I have pain, and it's really getting me down. Can anyone help?

Answer

Hi CMoore!

First, are you on any preventive medication for your Migraines? Some of the preventive medications, take Topamax, for example, can cause you to not sweat and overheat very quickly.

I agree with you! Summer should be fun! Alot of us Migrainuers have weather triggered Migraines, mostly from pressure changes, like when a nice thunderstorm blows in, but what triggers one, may not trigger the other. See this article: Migraines often triggered by changes in weather.

Talk to your doctor about how the heat affects your Migraines. There may be something they can do for you.

Good Luck!
