Seasonal Migraines/Headaches

I definitely fall into this category.  My migraines are WAY worse in the spring and summer and fall.  Spring and Summer are my favorite seasons.   Last week I did some gardening outside and I’m not sure if I used muscles that are causing my current 4 day migraine, or if it’s the dreaded Magnolia trees which is just about to bloom.  I love how the tree looks when it’s in bloom but man, I can’t go near it or open the windows near it until it’s done.  I like gardening and don’t want to give it up.  I’m going to try something this weekend to see if it helps.  I have allergies to just about everything outdoors.  So as an experiment I bought these and these and I’m going to try them out.   If my migraine comes back (if it goes away before then) then I’m going to settle on the muscle issues causing these particular migraines.

 

Here’s what I bought to help with the pollen (in case that is the issue).

Here’s an article about it that made me realize I wasn’t crazy, that my migraines do seem more seasonal!

What’s your Headache Season?
