Once Thanksgiving has passed, we generally tend to think the winter season has arrived.

Winter is typically a refreshing time of year that many eagerly await. Living here in Florida, I can’t say I love the cold, but I do look forward to the cooler days we have during fall and winter.  Don’t get me wrong, we often do get down to freezing during the winter months, but I don’t miss the snow and biting cold!

If you are a migraine sufferer, you don’t need to be told that migraines are often accompanied by nausea and/or vomiting, sensitivity to light, sensitivity to noise, along with other symptoms – and all ending with throbbing, intense pain which is generally on one side of the head.
