How do storms cause headaches, anyway?

I've been told that weather and pressure changes are a migraine trigger, and it appears that I'm sensitive. I wish I could picture how this works. Even if it wouldn't change the outcome, I just like to know.

I had a peripheral vision test this morning because I missed some on my annual vision exam. I felt like I was going blind as I looked at the yellow dot of light and pressed the clicker every time I saw any glimmer of light appear around it. I saw through a misty gray haze at times, having trouble even as I blinked dutifully to clear my vision as told. I had ten minutes for each eye and they felt like they lasted forever. I became increasingly anxious as I felt so much time was lapsing that I must be missing something.

Glaucoma runs in my family and I know if caught early it can be treated so that you don't keep losing vision.

Still, no one likes a threat of any vision loss. As usual with medical tests, the technician isn't allowed to give you the results. I hate the wait before finding out, as my imagination runs wild.

As long as I keep enough vision to read, that's all I ask.
