My daugher is 9 years old and she's been suffering from migraines for over a year now. It happens about once every one to two months. She will wake up really early, around 5am, with a really strong migraine and vomit off and on until about 2pm. After about 2pm she'll suddenly be completely fine and acts completely normal the rest of the day. She's had two MRI and they were normal, accept for an incidental finding of a very tiny cyst that has not grown in size. What else could be happening with her?

Hello Erica,
I am sorry to hear that your daughter is battling migraines at such a young age. I would definitely get her in to see a doctor, they may be able to provide some abortive medications to stop the migraine or even preventatives to keep her from getting them.

Where is this cyst located? I had one on my right maxillary sinus and ended up having it removed "in case" it was contributing to the head pain--it didnt have any affect.

None of us here are trained medical professionals, I would love to help but honestly would be guessing at a diagnosis and that's not fair to you or her.

I would talk to the pediatrician and if they dont have much headache experience find a specialist to see.

Good luck,
