I am 28 and I have suffered from migraines probably since I turned 18-19...around that time frame. My mother gets them really bad and so I wasn't all that shocked when I started to get them. I see a nuerologist for them now because they have gotten terribly painful to where none of my several medications work. Most of the time I wake up with them.
I had asked my daughter's doctor about her getting them and she said there really wasn't a way to tell. I had asked because at the age of 3 she started complaining of eye pain...pretty much on one side. We took her to an eye specialist and her vision was fine. Some mornings she wakes up great smiling and happy and some she is a monster and hates everything and not all the time but sometimes say her eye hurts. She is sensitive to noise as well, all the time it seems.
My mother in law took her to the movies this past weekend to see Horton Hears a Who my daughter is 4 yrs old will be 5 in Oct. They left as soon as the movie started because my daughter said it was too loud and she didn't feel good. As soon as they got home she went and laid down and threw up everywhere and within 10 min said her head felt better? Does anyone else have younger children with migraines? Any advice to figure this out or what to do if I think she is having one. I know I am miserable when I have a migraine and I feel bad if I don't know and I expect her to jump out of bed and get ready for school or anything for that matter.
