Cities with the fewest barometric changes:
https://www.securevideo.com/blog/201...etric-pressure

(the website lists all the cities, not just the "best" and "worst")

20 Major U.S. Cities with the Least Barometric Variation (days per year of >= .20 changes)

Honolulu (0 days per year)
Miami (4)
San Diego (7)
Los Angeles (7)
Tampa (11)
San Jose (14)
Sacramento (18)
San Francisco (18)
Phoenix (22)
New Orleans (22)
Jacksonville (22)
Birmingham (29)
Houston (29)
Atlanta (37)
San Antonio (37)
Austin (37)
Memphis (44)
Las Vegas (47)
Little Rock (48)
Charleston, SC (48)
Not surprisingly, it is the southern cities which have the fewest days of variation. The “worst” list reinforces this theme:

20 U.S. Cities with the Most Barometric Variation (days per year of >= .20 changes)

Augusta, Maine (128 days per year)
Rapid City, SD (127)
Montpelier, VT (117)
Bismarck, ND (117)

Denver is right up there. The city sucks enough with all the changes, rude people moving here and rapid growth, extra pollution. Raised on a ranch, no longer there, was the best time of my life.
Sorry, went off topic. Will be moving as soon as husband retires end of year. I will not have access to pain meds very soon. It cuz of me that we are looking for a better place to live. I have been looking into Northern Idaho
IS THIS A BAD CHOICE? I cannot stand the heat, my migraines get SO much worse

Please don't rush off to Memphis, the sinusitis capital of the world. I blame crop dusters broadcasting multiple chemicals on the cotton crops surrounding that city.

When the barometric pressure drops below 29.8 I get hit. Something I have started to watch when I feel the pain coming on.
Chemicals really do a number on me.
Sinus headaches are horrible. A very tight headband has given me relief from them, not taking then away, but making them less severe.

I believe Idaho gets some really hot days in the summer. They can be well over 100 degrees. You might do better somewhere on the West Coast in Washington, Oregon, or California. For instance, one city just south of Santa Cruz, CA (I think it was called Castroville) never got higher than 85 one summer I watched the temps there. I'd move there myself if I could afford it.

Have you tried the new anti-CGRP antibody medicines?
They are the first specifically for migraine and have very good data on prevention. When you do get one you can still take a sumatriptan or such.

I can believe that city info because when I lived in florida I never had the issues I have here in sc with sinuses and my migraines . I have had migraines since I was 16 yrs old and a dr once told me he said he had never seen anyone as young as I was to have migraines he believed they are hereditary . I believe the higher humidity keeps them at bay as well . But what works for me may not work for you . I know over the years they have lessened so apparently the older you get the less severe they are at least for me . Also missed a lot of senior year high school because of migraines and a car accident which injured several areas of my body so had to have a teacher come to my home and tutor me so I could get my diploma . I might want to add stress does not help them either .

So many of us with the same problem! Northern Idaho is low in altitude and I am hoping that will make Bonners Ferry a good choice. Here, 16 miles north of Denver, I swear the barometric pressure is like a rollercoaster!.
