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
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.
Finally! I can confidently make/keep plans.
I have to admit that I don’t have migraines, but I have severe rheumatoid arthritis. Barometric pressure affects my joint pain more than any other outside factor. If I can’t predict a major swing, no treatment helps enough after the pain happens for me to function. It’s ruined so many plans in my life and I’m too young to be laid up all arthritic. WeatherX allows me to either prep in time or plan around major swings. If it affects migraines like RA, you need this. I had such a hard time finding a source of accurate info specifically showing differences in barometric pressure, since another major weather app removed theirs. My husband ran into this app, but I regrettably ignored him for awhile because I don’t suffer migraines. Out of desperation, I finally checked it out and haven’t looked back. Since you can set your threshold for notifications, it’s not annoying, just a lifesaver. I can’t comment on the ear plugs, but if migraines are as tied to pressure as RA, I’m sure they’d change lives. I wish I had a simple solution like that! I’d give this app 6 stars if I could.
