Alright, I'm a fourteen year old male. Usually every weekday I get these HORRIBLE migraines that last for hours usually. The headaches always start around 3-4 p.m. And I can almost always feel them coming. Once the pain was so bad I just threw myself on the ground where I was standing and laid there holding my head for around ten minutes until it got a little easier to bear. I have not spoken with a doctor about it, at first I thought I was just having an allergic reaction to my allergy medication, but upon stopping that they still occur. I cannot say precisely when they started, I just know they did sometime this school year. A friend of mine has suggested it might be lack of sleep, as I usually get 6-7 hours of sleep on weeknights and end up with migraines, but usually on the weekends I sleep late (11 or 12 hours) and rarely get them on weekends. I've tried doing research and found that I may have "Cluster headaches" although I don't know for sure as I can't say where the pain is, I have forgotten where exactly it is and will probably only while I'm having them that I can say. I'll try to update this the next time I have one with where I'm feeling the pain. Usually during one if I give myself something to concentrate on (Such as if I'm playing a video game) I can ignore a portion of the pain, but it's still there. Does anyone have any suggestions? I've attempted getting more sleep but it just isn't easy. I have multiple younger brothers I'm constantly babysitting and have just started high school and am usually busy thanks to my AP classes. So I don't know how possible it'd be to try sleeping more if anyone suggests that. Thank-you in advance

I think you should speak to your parents. It could be possible it has something to do with diet or lack of certain vitamins but it's difficult to figure out what's going on without seeing a doctor.

My migraines are NOT due to stress, and I get tired of people suggesting that they're caused from it... but yours may be since they come one later in to your day. Have you been able to relate them to your routine, or do they follow an hr or two after a stressful class or anything? Foods can cause them, dehydration, etc. Drink lots for a few days to make sure that's not it, since it's an easy cause to eliminate. Eye strain? There are so many factors, but ignoring the pain only allows it to get worse. Try to recognize when it just starts and take a pain reliever right away (Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen, mixed with caffeine and aspirin tabs work really well for me) - just don't let it get out of control. Avoid loud noises and bright lights if you can too. I hope you can find your root cause and get them under control. Hugs and blessings to you!
