I have had a horrible headache for the past few hours, slowly building. Then it suddenly got really windy outside and I was like, "Oh, well that makes sense." I have frequently noticed that if a pressure front is coming through, I get splitting headaches that nothing seems to remedy. Anyone else? Have you found anything that helps?
Yes. I always get a headache when the wind hits the area of my head that is called the “soft spot” on a newborn baby’s head. Also when the barometric pressure suddenly changes I can get a headache or extremely fatigued.
@A MyFibroTeam Member Yeah, I know how you feel. I've had the thought that if there ever was anything "actually" wrong with me, it might get ignored because doctors will just chalk it up to another fibro symptom. I firmly believe that my thyroid is off. I am positive for antibodies for Hashimoto's. My whole family has thyroid dysfunction. I have most of the symptoms of thyroid dysfunction. Unfortunately, my hormone levels are still within "normal" clinical ranges, and my doctor thinks the symptoms are all fibro related and will not even try treating the thyroid. Same with the last couple doctors I've talked to, including an endocrinologist. Sometimes I wish I hadn't gotten the fibro diagnosis because now I feel like nothing else will ever be taken seriously.
I have noticed this too. Before I knew I had Fibromyalgia, I noticed I would get headaches/migraines on windy days and wasn’t sure why, I now realize it’s the Fibro.
