Ive read a few posts here but seem to be a bit old so hoping to get any info possible...
My daughter has had headaches since finding out she needed glasses and still has them and lately started the pill for an acne problem and the headaches have been worse lately. The dr had her stop taking the pill but is still having these headaches that she says she feels like she could pass out at times and says she feels like she always has a small one.
The last time she called me to be picked up from school I scheduled an appointment and took her straight there. In the past the dr has said things like "write down when, what you ate, water consumption etc." This time a different doctor took her blood pressure and it was a little high. She also stated she wanted her to have an MRI which the first showed a "cloudy spot". We had another today to find it is still there and was referred to as "white matter". She's scheduled to see a neurologist next week but needless to say I am very worried, she's only 15 and there is no history of headaches with her mom, myself or our parents, best we know.
She eats good, drinks lots of water, doesnt excersize much but does some running and lacrosse.
Anyone have anything similar??

I hope everything works out for your daughter and the neurologist can help her. I don't have normal headaches, I have chronic migraines. I have been through many test in my life time, MRI, MRA, PET Scans...the neurologist found scar tissue on the right side of my brain in which was causing me to have seizures. Finding anything out of the ordinary on the brain is very scary! I will say a prayer for your daughter.

God Bless,

Also get her to a Rhemy. She may have some kind of auto immune disease.
