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.
