Allergy Season &  Migraine Headaches

Spring is the start of allergy season. This may be a migraine trigger for those who suffer from this condition. Your symptoms may be much more intense during allergy season. Remember, weather is a migraine trigger just like scents and food.  

Migraines and weather triggers that occur during allergy season have a link that is complicated to understand.. The endocrine system, the immune system and the nervous system work together, which contributes to creating that painful migraine. If you get migraines, you have a sensitive nervous system. When there are changes in the environment, people that suffer from migraines, react to to those changes in the environment viewing it is a harmful.  The immune system releases chemicals when exposed to allergens. This may cause inflammation which may trigger your headache.
