The WeatherX Forecast app is your solution to forecast barometric pressure changes. Use this app in conjunction with your WeatherX earplugs as a proactive approach to help manage your weather-related headaches.
How to: Place your earplugs in prior to the shift in barometric pressure (as notified by a push notification) OR at the start of any symptoms.
With the WeatherX Forecast app, you have access to:
-A full 5-day barometric pressure forecast
-A full 5-day barometric pressure historical record
-Push notifications alerting upcoming weather systems
-Customizable pressure threshold (adjust your sensitivity to barometric pressure shifts in "Settings”)
-Organized and easy to understand presentation of barometric pressure data
In this new version, we’ve improved the delivery of push notifications and optimized our code to improved app reliability.
Ratings and Reviews
Great start, 2 requests
This app has proven very useful for predicting my migraine attacks and preparing accordingly, and for that I am grateful. I do have 2 requests that would get me to 5 stars:
-An Apple Watch app, preferably with complications so we can have the forecast where we will see it often without opening the app (a widget for iPhone would also be great). I am willing to pay for this feature, and have in fact paid for other weather apps hoping they would give me this, but which have proven to be less useful.
-I wish the scale for the graphs was constant, rather than changing to fit the data. This makes the biggest changes in each time period all look the same, when one week there may be very large changes, but another they may all be relatively small. The threshold markers are helpful, but this would make the data easier to interpret more intuitively.
First Headache in 20 yrs Went Away
So, I’m on my second month of using these plugs and have learned through trial and error what works. Don’t wait until you have symptoms, look at the forecast or alerts and take them seriously. Always wear plugs when traveling from city to city. Look at the data to determine at what level you get migraines. My migraines seem to occur when the barometric pressure drops. Three times I have gotten a mild headache that WENT AWAY, which hasn’t happened for 20 yrs. I used to get headaches that got worse and worse. Also, these are NOT sound blocking and no one even knows I’m wearing them. Today, I wore from 7-11am and 1-3 pm because of the data from the app. I have to sleep on my back if I wear at night for comfort. Every week, I travel out of town and the pressure was so stable last week that I didn’t wear for 3 days. My life is much better without headaches, nausea and fatigue. I have only had to take my sumatriptan once and within 10 minutes I felt fine so I kinda wish I held out. I would much rather pop in the plugs then pop a pill. So, stay diligent and use the information provided by app. I love not going through life wondering how I’ll feel. Finally, the things that I thought were triggers have not triggered anything. For years, people in healthcare have known weather can cause headaches, but there wasn’t anything to use. These have been wonderful and worth the diligence.
For someone who suffers from IIH (Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension), Osteoanecrosis(AVN), Rheumatoid Arthritis/Sjögren’s, and Chronic Migraines, the slightest changes in barometric pressure affects the hypertension in my head thus affecting my IIH and Migraines, as well as the Osseous-pressure in my Necroting bones and my RA and vascular pressure affecting my sjogrens, let’s just say it plays a HUGE role in my life.
Having data that can help predict changes and shifts which then allows me to pre-treat, helps me to try and salvage what I know is going to be a rough time ahead. Any bit of relief helps and I am EXTREMELY thankful and grateful for those keeping this app going and updated!!
I please Please PLEASE ask if the developer could make this into a Apple Watch App as well where in the middle of the infograph faces we can see and track the barometric pressures and their changes! If not, then at least an app that can be added on to the Apple Watch iWatch!
People with Migraines/RA, try this App out and follow it and pre-treat with your doctors recommendation of course and see if it helps! I know it has helped me to have some quality of life back!
Thank you WeatherX!!!!!!!!
