Headache when it rains?

I get bad headaches when the weather is rainy. Could this be related to sinus? It feels like a sinus headache. Why does the rain irritate my sinuses?

I would suspect mold and dust. Dust thrives in damp environments.

I agree. I usually get a surge in asthma symptoms before, during, and for about two days after it rains. You could try using a pollen count (which usually includes molds) the next time it rains and see if your headaches coincide with mold counts.

If you go on a search engine and do a search on it, you should be able to get one. The one I use is from UMDNJ, but I'm not sure if that's just for NJ or not.

You could also try checking the newspaper for a pollen count.

It can also be barometric pressure related. My migraines may be under control but when there is a "front" coming in i can usually feel it and have a headache because of it

I ALWAYS get a headache when it rains !! i think it's because of the changes in the air pressure,

I think it must be the pressure thing. Inside my head it feels like there is so much pressure built up. Sometimes I wwish I could cut my head open and let the pressure out, it hurts so bad hahahaha.
