Warm weather may trigger migraines

“Warmer weather and changes in atmospheric pressure may cause headaches and migraines, rather than pollution, researchers said Monday.

A U.S. research team showed that each temperature increase of 5 degrees Celsius — about 9 degrees Fahrenheit — appeared to increase the risk of severe headaches by nearly 8 percent compared to days when the weather was cooler.”

From Denny: I could have saved these guys a whole lot of money on their research and told them this was true! :) Been experiencing this for years. Of course, anecdotal is not evidence in the science community and it's a whole lot sexier to pay for the same results.
