What Type of Migraine Is Your Child Experiencing? From the Diamond Clinic

My first migraine attack happened at age five, a mere child. In a way I was lucky that I experienced aura with mine. That one symptom made it easier to diagnose and treat. However, many children have migraine and their symptoms go unrecognized.

The Diamond Headache Clinic in Chicago recently put together a slide show on the topic of migraine and children. Symptoms and treatment for migraine, abdominal migraine, tension-type and cluster are discussed in this slide show. It can help parents understand the symptoms presented in children and adolescents. I thank Diamond for asking me to share this information with you. You can learn more about the Diamond Headache Clinic here.
