Is there a relationship between allergies and migraines?

Most of my migraines start off as sinus headaches right above my eyebrows, but then eventually it will trigger a migraine. I've noticed that as my allergies have gotten worse over the past seven years, my migraines have become more frequent. Whenever there is a front moving in that causes the barometric pressure to change, my allergies will flare up and then cause a migraine.

Does anyone else have a problem with allergies and migraines?

From what I read somewhere, Allergies increase the likelihood of having migraine headache and may also influence the frequency of attacks. I learnt evidence suggests that the avoidance of food allergens may decrease the frequency of migraine attacks in some patients.

I have allergies seasonally and it does seem they are worse. The issue is this: there is a nerve right behind the sinus cavity that can get aggravated with a migraine, just like any facial nerve can. This can give us sinus symptoms like sinus pain, stuffed nose or runny nose. Now I have chronic migraines, so these symptoms are pretty much par the course really. Hard to determine sometimes whether it is a sinus cold or migraine symptoms. Of course, a bad sinus cold is pretty obvious and will cause the migraines to get worse as well.

RE: Is there a relationship between allergies and migraines?

It's almost the same with me. My migraines start either from the eyebrows or from eyes. But it's the same thing always, it isn't from the forehead in the start. I do wonder if this means I have sinus allergies as well. I've read before that if your headache is from the area between your eyebrows, then it must be a sign of sinus allergy. So it does make sense that migraines and allergies might have some kind of connection.

With my husband, his migraines always start from the back of his neck. It's weird because that never happened to me. My migraines start from the eyebrows or the eyes and migrate to my head and my temples. It's always that way so I find it hard to work or do anything else whenever I have migraine attacks.

And whenever I have colds and coughs, the migraine also follows. It's the same way if I cried too much, I get headaches after.
