An interesting study was done in France of 103 children and adolescents with migraine. The goal was to discover what, if any, "premonitory" symptoms the children had.
It turns out that premonitory symptoms, sort of early-on symptoms before the full blown attack and pain (if any), are quite common in children. 67% reported at least one symptom, though most had more than one – on average there were two symptoms of the 15 that the study measured for.
The most common symptoms? Face changes, irritability, and fatigue. The last two are common in adults, the first one isn’t. Face changes seem to be unique to child migraine.
