Barometric Pressure Headaches

Barometric Pressure Headaches
A barometric pressure headache is a kind of headache that is brought about or “triggered” by the changes in pressure of the oxygen levels in a person body, and ones inability to neutralize the internal pressure changes.

Since there is little you can do about the weather, it is reasonable for us to look at the internal aspects of this issue and different types of headaches.

Weather, as we all know, specifically weather changes; can have an adverse effect on some people. weather can trigger severe headaches and head splitting migraines. The ultimate cause of which, however, can not really be pinpointed or identified by technology or science.

We certainly have an opinion about it through our clinical experiences. The most plausible explanation for this, as deduced by some experts, is the change in pressure in select people who are predisposed.

Barometric Pressure Headache Symptoms


As the weather or climate changes, the atmospheric pressure likewise changes. This leads to some physical changes on the human body when it is unable to adapt, (as is covered in the beyond headaches lifestyle) that can be reflected by barometric pressure and headaches, among other symptoms.

Studies have shown that this may be one of several migraine causes. Continued studies have also shown that in a migraine, blood vessels in the head expand or contract to compensate for the varying oxygen levels.

These changes in the diameter of blood vessels play a part in the occurrence of migraine and can also be related to the cause of a barometric pressure headache.  treatment by medication is akin to putting a bandaid on a gusher.

Barometric Pressure Migraine Symptoms


Migraine is a special type of headache that can be categorized under another form of treatment. It is hard, however, to differentiate a barometric pressure migraine from a simple headache caused by a change in atmospheric pressure.

But, basically, different types of headaches and migraines can be identified since it this is a periodic headache.

Headaches from changes in pressure can also be expected in endeavors such as flying, hiking and even traveling to new locations. Studies furthermore suggest that a barometric pressure headache can be differentiated from a migraine since changes in atmospheric pressure are not the only factor for a migraine to occur.

Sensitivity to pressure changes seldom occur in a person unless other internal factors are present.

Resolving this is all about adaptability, and helping the sufferers body become more resilient, as opposed to simply treating the symptoms.
