I know exactly what you're saying! You are very sensitive to your environment. My boys are the same.
I have issues with heat as a trigger too. My boys keep fans on in their rooms even when the temp is 69 in the home. Smoke is very irritating to me after I quit. It's difficult to deal with triggers you can't control.

Headaches and migraines can be symptoms of other medical conditions. It is important that you see a doctor to rule out other problems. Most cities have free clinics that will examine you at low cost or no cost. Many doctors will see you on a sliding scale.
Keeping a weekly migraine journal can help us built a history of when migraines occur and also may pinpoint triggers. As a community, our journal may also help a member find similarities and encourage them to do further research of their own.

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute or an hour or a day or a year but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever. Lance Armstrong
I notice that caffeine is no problem until I begin my allergies. The past week was so horrible that I broke down to call my doctor for advice. I cut coffee and all caffeine drinks out but it didn't help for this week. View Thread
