My daughter has had a constant headache for 3 months

by Wendi
(Sheridan IN UNITED STATES)

Her pain all started last fall. We treated it like any other headache but this one hasn't gone away no matter what we have tried. She has recently had an MRI of the head and neck and everything came back normal. She is currently on Elavil to see if it helps. So far after 5 weeks no relief. Her pain is in her temples and its constant and throbbing. She is 14 years old and an absolute trooper. She describes the pain to me as a level 6. She has also been to a chiropractor, the eye doctor, her pediatrician and nobody has a clue. If you can shed some light on this we would greatly appreciate it

Although Elavil is a good choice for both migraine and tension headache, the real problem is getting to the source of the headaches. In the 14 year old with daily headache, I would examine the stress levels. Hormones may not be the most likely choice simply because they are occurring daily. Not sure where you live but if this has been going on for months, please look for a pediatric neurologist, preferably once who specialized in headache.
