Does my Child have Migraine?

Detecting child migraine

Child Migraine – catch it early to get the best treatment!

5%+ have an attack before age 15 (1/3 of those before age 5)!
Having 1 or more parent with migraine increases risk.

Possible symptoms to watch for:

  • Changes in temperament (temper, sadness, attention problems)
  • Nausea/vomiting/cyclical vomiting
  • Abdominal pain (typically 2 hours or longer)
  • Head pain (sometimes)
  • Car sickness
  • Flushed or pale
  • Shadows under the eyes
  • Visual aura (a small percentage of cases)
  • Sensitivity to light

A new/different headache, or change in frequency?  Time to see a doctor!
