I've noticed an increase in migraines. When I move from a cold room to hot outdoors, hard alcohol, cold weather, stress & humidity. Ideas?

Multifactorial: 'migraines', like the term 'energy', can mean different things to different people. If you've been diagnosed by an allopathic practitioner, you may already know that that kind of headache can have many triggers. Best ideas will probably come from the practitioner who diagnosed you. If you havent seen a PCP, I suggest you start there. ...Read more

Fallacy: It's no more difficult to catch a cold in summer than in winter. Most experts agree that it's more a matter of our tendency to aggregate indoors when the weather turns colder.

6/f/3p26.3 duplication (GDD, small stature). Unusually cold, sore, red, swollen hands in cold weather. Not improved upon warming near heater 30mins.

6/f/3p26.3 duplication (GDD, small stature). Unusually cold, sore, red, swollen hands in cold weather. Not improved upon warming near heater 30mins.

Not enough cases: I found only 2 other cases reported of a duplication of 3p26.3. One is from New Zeland. She sounds like she could use heated mittens in the cold--available at ski shops. Impossible to say whether it is related to the duplication. You could contact the authors of this publication--I'm sure that they would be fascinated to see her. http://www.hindawi.com/journals/crig/2014/295359/ ...Read more

6yr old son gets hot swollen hands, fingers, ears, lips in cold weather or extremely cold food, depending on exposure. What causes "hot swollen skin"?

6yr old son gets hot swollen hands, fingers, ears, lips in cold weather or extremely cold food, depending on exposure. What causes "hot swollen skin"?

See below: Increased blood flow to theses "extremity areas" is likely the cause. As long as there is no pain, this is natural (to an extent) so to keep these areas from loosing blood flow (cold can do this) and thus decreasing oxygen to the tissues, where, if without, tissues metabolism slows and if it stops, tissues can die. His response may be slightly exaggerated but, without pain, i would not worry. ...Read more

Can cold weather or seasonal changes in weather affect blood pressure?

Can cold weather or seasonal changes in weather affect blood pressure?

Blood pressure generally is higher in the winter and lower in the summer: That's because low temperatures cause your blood vessels to narrow — which increases blood pressure because more pressure is needed to force blood through your narrowed veins and arteries. In addition to cold weather, blood pressure may also be affected by a sudden change in weather patterns, such as a weather front or a storm. Your body — and blood vessels — may react to abrupt changes in humidity, atmospheric pressure, cloud cover or wind in much the same way it reacts to cold. These weather-related variations in blood pressure are more common in people age 65 and older. Other seasonal causes of higher blood pressure include weight gain and decreased physical activity in winter. If you have high blood pressure already, continue to monitor your blood pressure readings as the seasons change and talk to your doctor. Your doctor may recommend changing the dose of your blood pressure medication or switching to another medication. Don't make any changes to your medications without talking to your doctor. If you have questions about how weather may affect your blood pressure, ask your doctor. ...Read more

I have no appetite , no energy, headache, cough , hot then cold within a few minutes  and during the night wake up cold but clothes wet from sweating.
