Abdominal Migraines

I haven’t seen any mention of Abdominal Migraines in any of the forums. I was recently diagnosed with this. There’s very little information on the internet other than it’s commonly found in children. At 68, I’m hardly a child!

I suffered frequent migraines as a teenager and have had them sporadically through the last 50 yrs. Only recently have they become as often as 2-3 times a month.

It always begins with severe abdominal pains followed by nausea and the migraine which lasts 24-48hrs. The abdominal pains gradually taper off but the sensitivity to light and sound remains.

Anyone else had any experience?
