Migraines and Babies

There is no doubt that being a parent is hard work. It's a constant heartbreak and many times a thankless job. But, I have to say that this past weekend has been one of the most challenging for me.

My son, who will be 7-years-old next month, has recently been suffering from debilitating headaches. It was VERY disconcerting for me to see him hold his little head and cry. As a mother, my first thought was to make him as comfortable as I could. Then I would pray to the Gods that there could be some way I could transfer his pain onto myself. Then, I would fight my damnedest to not think the worst, which, of course, inevitably happened... (Dear Lord, he has a brain tumor!!)

I took my little man to the doctor yesterday and had him undergo a variety of tests. Glasses? Ruled out. Brain Tumor? Thank God! Ruled out! Migraines? Oh, my God...my baby may be suffering from migraines.

As it turns out, this is more common that I thought. Apparently, the National Headache Foundation estimates 60 percent of all children suffer from occasional headaches. But up to 20 percent of children may suffer from chronic or recurrent types of headaches including tension-type or migraines. How terrible is that!! My baby's doctor has ordered me to keep a journal of my son's headaches and has scheduled a follow up for 2 weeks.

I hope these headaches let up by then...

Gloria,
I'm a VERY headache-prone person, and after years of chiropractic and popping advil and tylenol, I discovered that they were food-related. I had a devastating headache during my pregnancy that lasted three days and kept me curled up in bed. I was scared. The headaches would come on after I ate soy products, wheat, or tomatoes. Now, I avoid those things and avoid headaches. My chiropractor practices kinesiology, or "muscle testing" and was able to corroborate which foods were triggering the headaches. I've heard other stories of people who have had good luck with this approach. You might want to keep track of what foods your son eats, and see if there's a pattern of headaches developing afterwards. Other things to look for: Will his headache ease up after he's gone poop? Good luck with this. It's awful watching your child suffer. And feel free to contact me if you want more info about what worked for me.
-Amy

Initially, Earth was believed to be the center of the universe, which consisted only of those planets visible with the naked eye and an outlying sphere of fixed stars.
