Does high humidity make headaches worse?
I have noticed that on really humid days, when the dew point is around 70 or higher, just walking around outside slowly gives me a headache after about 15 min. This is the only time that this sort of activity gives me headaches. Ordinarily, I can tolerate moderately paced walks of at least a half mile without any symptoms.
Does anyone know whether high humidity makes PCS symptoms worse, and if so, why? Has anyone else experienced this?
Male, 37 years old, suffering from PCS after being rear-ended on 1/23/11. Was largely recovered before suffering a severe relapse in August of 2011, which was apparently caused by too much computer work.
Most persistent symptoms are light sensitivity, sound sensitivity, headaches, brain fog, dizziness, fatigue, and eye strain, all of which are easily induced by activity.
I also suffer from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), and Major Depressive Disorder. I had all of these conditions before my brain injury, but the CFS and depression have been exacerbated by the injury.
