Hi Scott,

Welcome to the Migraines & Headaches community. I'm filling in for your regular Mod, Chrissy, while she's away today.

That's a good question about the weather and headaches. I knew that heat would be a trigger, but I wasn't sure if humidity would play into it.

This report from WebMD tells us that in a survey of headache sufferers, 73% identified weather or barometric pressure changes as a headache trigger .

Sorry to hear that the pain is not subsiding. Be careful to follow the dosage directions with the OTC pain relievers. I would encourage you to see your doctor. They may be able to prescribe something that works better.

I'm sure our community will be chiming in with their thoughts, too. But, in the meantime, check out that article for some tips on how to cope with headache and migraine triggers.

Hope you feel better soon!
