Did you know that the weather can trigger your most excruciating headaches or migraines? Other triggers include red wine, perfume and food allergies. But according to a study in Neurology, every five-degree increase in the temperature increases hospital-related headache visits by 7.5 percent.
Keeping a headache diary to track your individual occurrences may prove helpful. Record your food intake, beverages, medications and activities for the week, plus the time your headache begins and ends. You may be able to see a pattern in your headaches and be prepared to help prevent them.
