Headache

My 10 year old son lately continually almost every day complaining  about headache, mostly on  one side  of the head and it changes to other side or sometimes both sides. He may had a minor concussion two months ago, because a soccer ball him his head.  Is this headaches could be the result of what happened to him earlier? Or something else?

Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of his symptoms. Headaches can be caused by a variety of reasons often categorized into primary headaches, secondary headaches, and cranial neuralgias. The primary headaches include tension headache, migraine cluster headaches and similar pathologies. Secondary causes can be due to sinusitis eye problems, etc and the cranial neuralgias that include the trigeminal neuralgias. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care pediatrician initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
