I have a 7 year old who has been suffering with headaches/migraines for about 3.5-4 years now which is so sad because she is just so young. I am looking for any other parents who also go through this. I personally have had random headaches through out my life but I’ve never had migraines and it breaks my heart as a mommy to see her deal with this and I can’t even understand how she feels. I have family history (parent/sibling/aunt/uncles/grand parents)and my husband has had migraines occasionally through out his life but nothing severe or recurrent like our daughter. There are days, like today, where I just sit and cry because I don’t know what to do for her. I can’t sympathize with her because I don’t understand, and become so frustrated because I just don’t understand.
She see’s a neurologist, has a daily medication regiment, has had MRI’s to rule out anything severe, we’ve done diet jouurnaling to see if there are specific triggers, we’ve done journaling to see if there is any specific day/time/month etc that triggers it and we’ve come up with no specific answers.
I’m just trying to find support because no one around here has ever dealt with children with this issue…..
