Migraine Symptoms in Children

Migraines are an inherited factor in my family, and now my grandson is getting them. Prior to 2 headaches, about 6 months apart, he has passed out. A deep faint that comes on quickly. Has anyone experienced this or seen it as a symptom of migraine in kids or adults? It could be unrelated, but I'm thinking there is a connection.

  1. Thank you for reaching out, Missjudy922. I hear how prevalent migraine is in your family. It is hard watching loved ones, especially your young grandson, suffer from migraine symptoms. While we cannot offer specific medical advice or diagnostics over the internet (for safety reasons!) I can say that dizziness and lightheadedness can be a symptom of migraine for some in the community. I thought this article might be of interest to you:
