my sons headaches
by: jessica

I have an 11 yo that has been getting very very bad migrains, the ones that us adults get, he gets very sick with them he will throw up for a few hours then he will be sick for at least two to three days after it, i have taken him to the drs they all keep telling me its the flu or a cold.

i have also taken him to the eye dr thinking it might be his eyes nothing has changed as of tonight my mom was bringin me how and we had to stop on the side of the off ramp and he vomited for 5 minutes straight, hes been this way since about september 2012, if it was the flu or a cold dont u think we all would be sick as well? what else can i do to ease his suffering?

Answer:

It sounds like migraine. I suspect someone else in the family has headaches, maybe just "sinus" headaches which may be mild migraines.

He deserves the proper treatment. I would recommend you take him to a pediatric neurologist, usually they are found in a Children's hospital, Dept of Neurology. Ask the pediatrician and don't take no for an answer! It really isn't fair to him. I have had several patients tell me they remember having migraines as young as 4 years old.

Good luck!
