Weather and Headaches

Yesterday, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky and the temperature was near 80.  It was a gorgeous day, no doubt about it.

Last night the clouds rolled in, there was a bit of rain.  Today its about 20 degrees colder than yesterday and there’s no blue sky, only dirty looking grey clouds, like clothes dryer lint.

Headaches are rampant today in the house due to the change in the weather, and sinuses are the culprit.  I know from long experience I have the most issues with the sphenoid sinus due to where the sinus pain is.

I’ve had sinus issues for as long as I can remember, and used to take over-the-counter decongestants constantly.  Now I can’t take them at all, or else my heart skips, so I am reduced to more natural remedies.

I have a Neti Pot on order, so I cannot comment on that, but I have heard nothing but good things about them.  In the meantime, I use Saline Spray with a few drops of Peppermint Oil which really works.

This is supposed to be a long, miserable year for those of us who have sinus issues, allergies and hayfever.  Do what you can to keep yourself healthy!
