Children complaining of headaches

Common Questions and Answers about Children complaining of headaches


Avatar m tn Likewise, the sort of quick jerking of a muscle (often a leg muscle), called myoclonus, that occurs sometimes as people are falling asleep is normal and not a sign of underlying neurological disorder. Headaches and GI complaints are common somatic complaints among children, and you will probably be safe at this point treating them in an off-hand fashion with your daughter. By off-hand I do not mean making light of them, but rather not making much of an issue about them either.
Avatar n tn What if a child have been complaining of being fatigued, having headaches, and stomach, muscle, and joint pain for the last 2 weeks. What can this be?
Avatar n tn While my 15 year old son does not complain of stomach aches, he is complaining of headaches lately. His BS is very well controlled, but I am thinking that the headaches are more tension related than realted to his type 1 diabetes. He's a sophmore in high school and was diagnosed on New Year's Eve 2011, so he is still honeymooning. From what I see in this forum, CT scans aren't providing any answers to the headaches. I'll start looking in the activites/stress direction. Thanks for posting!
Avatar n tn In all honesty, I have searched for hours. All the descriptions of sinus headaches and migraines do not capture her experience. They describe pressure on top of the head, at the back of the head, behind one eye. They describe throbbing, pulsating pain, even a tingling. Sarah is adamant that this is not what she is feeling which is a sudden onset, uniform ticklish feeling behind her forehead that is extremely annoying while it lasts but not painful as such.
Avatar n tn Now I will notice if he takes the glasses of briefly his right eye will cross! Recently, (the last week) he has been complaining of headaches and now his right eye lid is now not quite opening as wide as it did or as wide as the left. Any thoughts????
210400 tn?1325384170 My 8 year old has been complaining of headaches and dizziness. The first I heard of it was yesterday, but my husband said she told him that about a week ago (Growl). I plan on making her an appointment because to me I don't want to mess around with anything. Today the school nurse called and told him that she was at the nurses office complaining of a headache, and that she passed all of her vision screenings. Anyone ever had a child whose had headaches this early on? Any advice? Thanks!
Avatar f tn Pray everything is going better. Yes I have heard of 2 siblings having it a good friend of mine and her sister both have it and had the surgery as adults. Praying that u find answers.
Avatar n tn my six year old son is having the blinkin and also complaining of headaches and sleeping alot...i read that you said it may be a brain email address is ***@****'t know how i got to this page...please email me with a response.
Avatar n tn bet617, That seems awful high. I wouldn't think it should ever be that high. I am not a doctor, but I would call mine first thing Monday morning and schedule an appointment. Also, check for other signs such as urinating too often and excessive thirst. Keep a diary. I am on the questioning side of my daughters and just wondering. I have pre-diabetes and am anemic both iron and b-12.
Avatar n tn It just sounds the poster doesn't see or treat her (adult) stepchildren (who she did not raise) as guests One doesn't expect guests in one's home to jump up and clear the table, but the poster does expect this of these two, even though they are not children who are learning to be a team with the family and clean up their messes, they are women in their 30s, visiting to see their father (I assume that is why they come, as it is hard to see them knocking themselves out to see a stepmom who thinks
Avatar f tn I have read about the percentages of childrens chances to get MS but, I want to know more about personal experiences. I ask because I have a 13 year old daughter who has been complaining of headaches since the begining of summer.
720035 tn?1230506821 She keeps her head under the cover and will not expose her eyes to light at all and is consistently complaining of pain. She did and has always had a certain amount of complaints with vertigo on and off her whole life. When this most recent incident occurred, she was sitting at the table in her wheel chair and asked to be put to bed being extremely dizzy and "out of sorts". Then, the pain came. I took her to the local ER four days before I decided it must be the shunt.
Avatar n tn At the time he seemingly had no symptoms, however, looking back, he was having frequent blackouts, horrible anger management issues, and probably some headaches. About 3 years ago he started complaining of a number of symptoms including excrutiating headaches, tremors, shakiness, vision problems, nausea, dizziness, anxiety, depression, nervousness, loss of balance, memory loss, fatigue, restlessness, insomnia, etc.
Avatar n tn I have had chronic daily headaches for the last year now. Since right after the birth of my last child. I have tried all kinds of different meds from daily meds to preventatives. I do not think that they are migraines since they do not come with anyother symptoms, but I am not sure They are alway one sided though. My neurologist has not really told me what causes them or what they are just switches my meds or ups the doses.
Avatar n tn I think some of it is due to stress (I keep all of my tension in my upper neck, which can cause some of my headaches), but I would not be surprised if some of them were because of Meniere's. I'm not a doctor, but I know you can get headaches from eye strain -- and if you have problems with balance or dizziness, then I wouldn't be surprised if you're getting headaches from your eyes trying too hard.
744765 tn?1233168096 My cousin was diagnosed with Chiari 1 in September of 2006. It started with the headaches, dizziness, couldn't stay balanced, was constantly throwing up. He went to numerous doctors, and 4 different Emergency Rooms and everyone kept telling him and my aunt that he had the flu, or a stomach virus, or that he had food poisoning.
363682 tn?1299492962 For around three or four years now, I have been suffering from headaches some two hours or more after the consumption of any amount of alcohol - although typically as few as two drinks upwards of any kind of alcohol. The headaches come on slowly but persistently and follow a line from the left side of my neck across the top of my head to just above the left eyebrow. They are not sharp pains but more of a constant 'throb' and can go on for hours.
299940 tn?1192322967 Over time the symptoms have increased to include headaches, memory loss, loss of concentration, and most recently migraine like symptoms of dizziness and nausia. i stumbled and fell recently and could not regain my balance so i finally put all these symptoms together for a trip to the doctor. She did an eeg and a ct scan to check for epileptic seizures. the results were startling to me. I have not had any significant problems with sinus or allergy suffering.
Avatar n tn Hi, Hope you are feeling better. Most of the headaches that occur in children are benign. Since your child is complaining of headache after playing it is important to rule out low blood sugar levels and dehydration as a cause of headache. Please make sure the child is well hydrated. It is best not to play immediately after eating a snack, a gap of 30-40 min should be there. Also avoid playing on an empty stomach.
Avatar f tn My son has had an outbreak of bumps on his cheeks, redness on his neck and shoulders and complaining of itching and headaches. These are the same symptoms I have. I literally think of killing myself everyday. I am so depressed and feel lost. When my son's school called to tell me had a rash on his face that looked aggravated I wanted to die. I don't even know how to tell them he has herpes at 7.
Avatar f tn Have you had an EEG before? Has your previous doctor given you a diagnosis for your condition? A diagnosis of migraine headaches are only given once other conditions which may present similarly have been ruled out. A referral to an ophthalmologist may be expected to rule out an underlying eye condition. You neurologist may request for a cranial scan and EEG to rule out intracranial involvement and a seizure disorder. Migraines and seizures may occur together.
Avatar n tn She was complaining of seeing light flashes and will even describe the colors of the flashes. She was checked for a retinal tear or detachment. The doctor has informed me that her retinas are fine and her eyes are healthy. She (the doctor) said children can have migraines that present themselves in this way with no head pain. My granddaughter is still complaining of flashes and I'm concern. Can you offer any help or advice?
Avatar m tn Hi Dr. Santos, I'm still observing my wife's condition. She haven't complaining yet of headaches now. If it happens again and its getting worse I will see her doctor again. Thanks for the advice.
Avatar n tn Done the gammit of allergy tests, ear docs, eye problems-floaters, ear aches from hell neck and jaw swollen all the time, headaches. reading all of these pages has actually given me some relief! I asked my doctor about the relationship of my ear face and neck pain and he says he's never heard of the relationship between bad teeth and all these symptoms. I have extremely painful teeth and am ready to have them all pulled. Can't afford it but willing to go through it some how.

That is a good feeling. For a pain update to those who care.. My MRI is tommorrow.. so that is a huge step..

Avatar f tn He switched him to naproxen for the headaches. Said he believed part of the headaches were migraines because he has enough of the symptoms of migraines to make the diagnosis. BUT, he said he shouldn't be having them as often as he was and he thought some of the headaches were caused by over medicating. That taking the tylenol w/codeine as often as he was, wasn't good and could actually CAUSE headaches. Go figure. He didn't say much about the vision issues.
Avatar n tn At the same time, many children who display PDD are not unaware of the reaction of others - they feel left out. This can be quite disheartening and lead them to develop negative self-perceptions. Stress is frequently a contributing factor, and sometimes even the main cause, of headaches. Persistent, recurrent headaches certainly warrant evaluation.
Avatar n tn But I'm concerned about having children - I plan to have children w/in the next 2 years, you know the clock is ticking. Most of all I'm really concerned about the break out before the clear up all the pamphlets talk about. I'm a teacher and can't bear the thought of a severe breakout. Is it worth it?
572651 tn?1333939396 Do you grow weary of hearing the inspirational tales of people who have MS but still conquer the world? Do you have trouble identifying with the athlete who just ran, swam or biked across the world in the face of MS or the person who climbs into the ring with a raging bull and emerges with the championship belt? The list of motivational speakers includes a wide variety of talents and skills and they mean well, but it can be difficult, if not impossible to relate to their message.
Avatar n tn My daughter who is 2 has started complaining of back pain only while she is in her carseat. She starts complaining only a few minutes into a ride and says "Ouch mommy, my back hurts." She reaches her hand behind her to grab her back and show me where it hurts. Then she shifts back and forth on each side of her hip to try and get comfortable. I cannot figure out what is causing this.
