    Default Paediatric migraines

    Does anyone else have a child that suffers from migraines?
    My 5 year old son was diagnosed with them yesterday.
    I also suffer from them and it's just awful seeing him suffer.
    Is your child on preventatives? What do they take when they have an attack?

    My 11 year old gets a migraine every 2 - 4 weeks.

    The GP told me to give her disprin when she feels one coming on.
    It does help to lessen the severity (sometimes).

    They are the worst! I grew up with 2 a week as a child. My mum tried everything and the only thing that helped me (other than pain medication) was a total change of diet. She cut out sugar, wheat, dairy and loads of other foods that a naturopath recommend and they stopped completely.
    Good luck

    An undiagnosed tongue tie can cause tension in the jaw leading to migraines. Worth considering. Xxx

    Thank you, but no tongue tie. That was checked right away.

    Only disprin? She doesn't take anything else? Have you tried preventatives?
    As a migraine sufferer myself I cant imagine being only told to take disprin.

    The disprin is hit and miss.

    She wasn't prescribed any preventatives. I guess if we went back and complained about it enough she may be.

    It's really hard for me to work out how bad her migraines are because she does like to bung it on a bit and use a headache to get out of doing homework. However she definitely is getting them complete with vomiting episodes.

    Poor girl. I would be going back if she is vomiting. They are just so awful. Just from my experience if you were only told to take disprin the doctor didn't really take her seriously.
    Ive presented at hospital in agony after my prescription medication didn't work and the doctor on call told me to go home and take 3 Panadol. My dad nearly lost his mind at him! The good drugs soon appeared after he bothered to read my file.

    Have you thought to see your dentist and get him check for TMJ or jaw clenching? It can start in childhood and can cause nasty migraines from clenching their jaw/teeth together and the muscles spasm and get knotted. Just an idea.
