Hi there, I am just wondering if any of you have ever heard of Stomach Migraines before? My 19 year old daughter gets them and they make her so sick and she gets so much pain in her stomach. Our doctor has diagnosed her with this, the same as migraines only in her stomach. I am looking for ways to help her fight them when she gets them, it is usually in the middle of the night, with no stress or anything going on, they hit her out of the blue. I hate it when she gets them, the pain is horrible for her and many times I have had to rush her to emerg in the middle of the night. I would love to know if they are the same as regular migraines or if something you might use to help with regular migraines might help with these.
Thanks so much,
diagnosed with RSD in March of /03, diagnosed with Lupus in Sept./06.Thyroid Disease ,RA,IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) Acid Reflux,
Taking Plaquenell, Folic Acid, Synthroid,Nexium, Singulair,extra Strength tylenol when needed,and Zytram.

ive heard of them. they are abdominal migraines they occur mainly but not always in young children ive read about them in many nuro books a person with theese can be treated with triptans and other anti nausa meds spell? they maybe migraines but must be ruled out as such. ide go to a nuro /headache speacilalist and get there opion. also see a stomach dr to be on the safe side. best of luck to you. ide also advivese blood work with your regular dr.

My little brother has also been diagnosed w/ stomach migraines. It started when he was around 15, he is now 21 and still battling with occasional vomiting, pain and weight loss. This disease makes it difficult for him to function normally in life. He's been to many doctors, he's even seen a specialist in San Fransisco and still has episodes. Does anyone have any helpful advise, or know someone who can help.
