Do you get headaches when it's raining?

I rarely get headaches, but we are getting part of Hurricane Hannah here in Pa, not the high winds, just a lot of rain, but all day long I have had a headache and I suspect it's from this. I noticed the last time that it rained, with such heavy pressure, that I had a headache, too. Does anyone else experience this?

I live in Florida and yes, during/before/after Hurricanes or Tropical Storms I get a headache or a heavy feeling in my head. I also ache in my back where I broke it in a car accident almost 20 years ago. As someone mentioned before, it is the pressure. Hope your head feels better soon!

I used to get really bad headaches just before it rained. I could tell when we were about to get a storm even if it was sunny out. I think it had to do with the air pressure. Now I can tell when it is foggy out in the mornings before I even get out of bed because I hurt all over. It's weird how weather can effect the way we feel.

It is from the change in barometric pressure. I get pains in my toe where I had surgery in weather like this also.

Hi Nanajanet, I tend to get headaches when it is thundery but my son gets nose bleeds when the sky is heavy with rain. guess it is something to do with the air pressure. My nan was the same, she could always tell when it would rain heavily as she could feel it in her bones and would also get a headache. Ellie :D
