Please continue reading to learn more about how seasonal changes can cause headaches.
Can The Season Change Cause Headaches?
There are certain weather conditions that can trigger a headache or migraine attack, including some of the changes that accompany the shift between seasons. While it varies between individuals, seasonal changes can cause an imbalance in your body that play a role in developing headaches and migraines. Some of the following weather conditions can cause seasonal headaches:
- Extreme cold or heat.
- Glares from the sun.
- Bright sunlight.
- Dry air.
- High humidity.
- Stormy weather.
- Atmospheric pressure changes.
Another aspect of fall you may not expect to trigger migraines is the time change. The days get shorter, which can impact your sleep schedule. An inconsistent sleep schedule can trigger a headache, so it’s essential to get enough sleep. While the weather may not affect everyone, anticipating migraine triggers before they arrive can be a valuable tool to help you prevent them. Seeking help from an experienced chiropractor can also help you manage your headaches as we head into the colder months.
