Hugs to you and your daughter. I have had migraines for the past 26 years and can definitely feel your pain. My mother tells me that my grandmother used to have "spells" that would now be considered migraines. Would take to her bed for days. Both of my oldest sons have migraines. Seems to be a family tradition.

I have been on many medicines, but in the long term none of them seems to give permanent relief. Knowing her symptoms at the very onset is a very big help. I can look at my sons eyes and know there is one brewing before he even realizes it is coming. Sure enough, one follows pretty quickly. Getting out of all stimulation as quickly as possible is a big help. No light, no sound, no smells....etc. The ice to the back of the neck is also a big help! And please be careful with giving her over the counter pain medicines regularly. They are actually shown to be detrimental to getting over migraines in some instances. They force what is called a "rebound headache". Seeing a neurologist is a great idea. Good luck.....we certainly know what you are going through!

I think the Pediatric Neurologist is the best way to go. I am in NO way a Dr, but seeing as she is so young, this would be my thoughts if it were my 12 year old.

I started my headaches so young, and your DD has my deepest compassion for what she is enduring.

Hoping you get some help soon. Is it possible to be on a cancellation list in the meantime?
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.
