My bf and I suffer from too many migraines here in the Gem City (Dayton, OH). We seem to get the headaches when there are extreme weather changes. I often get a migraine before a storm. Sperling's Best Places lists migraine "hot spots." They have Cincinnati at the top of the list, and Dayton down to about 24. ABQ is not on this list. I think I have seen lists where ABQ is a pretty good place in terms of migraines. Does anybody have any experience with this? I know that I will still get migraines in ABQ, I'm just hoping that I won't get them as often.

Here is the list: Moderator cut: linking to competitors sites is not allowed

I had an idea to let your fingers do the walking and just call a doctor's office and axe them about stuff like migranes.

Yeah, I could do that. We'll be there soon anyway, so I guess I'll find out on my own.

Summers tend to be day after day under a high pressure system. I assume it is the change in pressure that gets you rather than the absolute pressure (high or low).

Summer rains in Dayton tend to come from systems moving in and making the pressure plunge. Summer monsoons here pop up and fade away under the same High, but I don't know if the sudden cooling effect of the rain would have any effect.

I'm not sure if this helps or not, but our 7 year old has had NO migraines since moving to Rio Rancho! You have no idea how happy that makes me!

Have you tried eliminating MSG from your diet? Also sometimes called hydrolyzed vegetable protein. This is common in many canned foods and soups. Trying to avoid MSG ended my migraine attacks. Don't think that Albuquerque played any part in this.

There is an interesting article, "What's Triggering your Migraine?", on the npr.org web site.

I also suffer from migraines. My experience in ABQ is that I definitely had fewer while living in ABQ. We moved back east to NJ and now I get them all the time, usually with changes in air pressure. There are other causes too which I try to avoid such as too many carbs, lack of sleep etc, but I definitely get more headaches here than in NM.

Years ago when I was in NM, my wife and I moved east for about 6 months. I had more migraines then, than any other time in my life. I went to the doctor and he said that the weather was likely a major cause of my headaches.

Best of luck with your Migraines in ABQ!
