My daughter was been having severe headaches and a few migraine. Kim giving her trylenol. or ibproven. they don't seem to be working. it will dull the headache, but it will be right back.. she does not drink soda. or sugary drinks. she on a very balanced diet. and she plays softball. very athletic and in good shape. s he does wear glasses. just had the prescription checked and it the right numbers that she has been wearing for 2 years. what else can I do for my baby girl now. Thanks to you all in advance.

I'm sorry you and your daughter are having such a tough time.

You should start by talking to your family doctor (or pediatrician, whoever you'd go to for a checkup). Then, if necessary you might be referred to a neurologist. Don't feel disheartened that Tylenol and Ibuprofen aren't working. There are a lot of other options out there, particularly medications and treatments tailored to headaches. Also, kids are much more likely to get through headache problems as they grow.

Best wishes,
DX: NDPH (2003-present), CRPS (1998-?) possible Abdominal Migraine (2010-present)
RX: Lamictal, Indomethacin, Propranolol, Provigil, Viibyrd, Oxycontin, Clonazepam, Zyprexa, Melatonin, Magnesium, Boswellia Serrata extract (Boswellic acid)

CPAP for mild sleep apnea
PRN: Ketamine nasal spray, Oxycodone
