Migraine and lightning

As a migraine sufferer, stormy weather seems to be one of the triggers for me - although as the article suggests, it's generally a combination of factors. As for this poor woman, feel for her :

"but that's nothing compared with Dawn Binks's experience of the links between weather and migraine. A migraineur since the age of 23 – she is now 43 – she gets attacks on between 20 and 23 days a month, meaning that she is unable to work."

Definitely connect headaches with thundery weather, although I always think it's the heavy air that leads up to the storm, and I need the storm to come so it clears it.

Thunder storm --> Stay inside --> Open a bottle of wine ---> Headache.

Must be the storm

Has anyone considered the poor husband of that woman? Worst case he doesn't get it at all in some months

Migraines? It's all in your head!
