My 8 year old has been complaining of headaches and dizziness. The first I heard of it was yesterday, but my husband said she told him that about a week ago (Growl). I plan on making her an appointment because to me I don't want to mess around with anything. Today the school nurse called and told him that she was at the nurses office complaining of a headache, and that she passed all of her vision screenings. Anyone ever had a child whose had headaches this early on? Any advice? Thanks!
I started getting migraines at a very young age. I think I was around 10 or so. Back then, I remember my doctor having me try a bunch of meds to see what, if anything would work. I don't remember any of the meds working all that well, but it was a long time ago. I think what worked best for me at the time was a combo of ibuprofen and tylenol. I would talk to her doctor first before giving any medication. Her headache may be caused by something else.
