Weather & Migraine
While science has not yet studied the impact of weather on migraine sufferers, you have been more than 600,000 to report weather as a trigger in the app. We decided to reach you out and hear why you think weather might be affecting you. Many of you mentioned that “you have a barometer in your head” and can feel changes in the weather without looking at the weather forecast. This pushed us into exploring how weather may affect migraine sufferers and design tools to help you cope with high risk weather days.
