Had to go and pick up DS from preschool when he started complaining of headaches when he moved around. He has no fever, no rashes but has vomited twice and is sensitive to light. Have a Drs appointment in an hour. It sounds like a migraine to me. Has anyone had a young child with migraine? Google says it is quite common in children. DS is 4.5yrs old

I will come back and reply later today.
My DS who is five suffers migraines.
We actually had another appointment at the Children's hospital this morning.

Dr said probably a virus, and to watch for meningitis but since coming home he has picked up considerably. I'm convinced it's a migraine, hopefully a one off.

My children don't get migranes but I did as a young child. I remember having to go to bed on my 6th birthday as I was so sick...the party went on without me í ½í¸•.
i still get them now occassionally.

He's gone from barely being able to lift his head and throwing up in the doctors office to sitting up, watching tv, laughing and now eating his lunch. Seems to have passed too quickly for a virus and he always gets a fever when sick but not this time.

Migraine in children???
My daughter got migraines from about age two, she also got really bad stomach aches. I too got migraines as a child and had the stomach pain. She was given Panadol and ibuprofen and it seemed to help enough to get comfortable to sleep. She'd have a huge sleep and wake up fine. They're awful for kids, at least as adults we can treat them with different meds. Hope it was a one off but if it wasn't get a referral so he's properly monitored

Sounds like a migraine I started getting them at age 3 and my 3yo DS started getting them recently. It's not hard to pick. There's very few other ailments that can make them that sick and then well again so quickly. It's rare in children but not unheard of.
I have a migraine plan at my son's daycare. They have a policy of only giving analgesics in cases of fever. I went to the doctor and got a script for panadol. This allowed the pharmacist to sell us panadol with a prescription sticker on it, which allowed daycare to give him panadol at first sign of a migraine.

Wow! I got my first migraine (that I know of) when I was 10, and I thought that was young to be getting them. Seems like it's a lot more common than I realised for even very young kids to get them. When I used to get one I'd go to bed as soon as I got home from school and sleep until the next morning. Mine I think are at least partly genetic (my mum also gets them). 30+ years later I still get them on and off, and no medical person has ever been able to figure out why, or an effective way of treating them.
Glad he's feeling a bit better already. They're nasty things. I wouldn't wish one on my worst enemy. I'm certainly hoping that's one thing Miss almost 2 does NOT inherit from me.

I remember getting migraines as young as four, children absolutely get migraines.

I'm totally convinced that's what it was. Just hoping it was a one off and not something he is going to have to suffer with ongoing
