    Thanks Teri,
    I will bring some of this to my teachers on Monday. I also wanted to thank you for making this site with grey and blue colours (makes my brain feel so much better)!

    You’re very welcome, Brenna. I remember all too well the problems Migraines caused me in school. Glad you like the colors! I’ll pass along your comment.

    Does anyone know of a quick OTC med for a 6 year old with a migraine? I am a 37yo f who suffers from migraines but take meds to prevent. My daughter recently started getting headaches and I plan to get her to the dr. this week but am trying to help her over the weekend. Tylenol is not working.
    Thanks!

    My 7 yr old has been suffering from a headache for 3 days now. She missed school on Friday. She whines and cries constantly begging for the pain to go away. OTC’s haven’t helped. I don’t know what to do and my baby is in agony! HELP!!

    Hi Kelly,

    It’s awful to see our children in agony. Has your daughter been diagnosed with Migraines? If it were my child, I would call her doctor, even the one on call now, and tell him the situation. If she is crying and extremely uncomfortable constantly, contact them now. Then please get back to me and let me know how she is.
