I have a 3 year old son, who for the last few months has been showing signs of sudden onset severe head pain in the rear of his head. He typically is not doing anything strenuous or playing rough, usually pretty random. They only last for moments, but during these moments he grips the back of his head yelping and crying uncontrollably. Nothing I do will sooth him or comfort him, then when they are over he resumes normal activity. When I ask him after words what just happened he always responds with " my head was hurting mommy". He also has been getting bloody noses...not simultaneously, but randomly (while watching television or in his sleep), so I went to the doctor where he told me the nose bleeds are normal but the head pain is abnormal in his age group and usually cause for concern. He said that he is unsure if he or myself should be worried, and that I should video tape one of these "episodes" and we can go from there. Thats like asking me to video tape a shooting star! If ANYONE has some advice or ideas, please let me know! Thank you!
