Does anyone have children with migraines?

My daughter is almost 8 and she has been having them about once a month since February. Sometimes she throws up, sometimes if we get ahead of it (which isn't often), she will just fall asleep and stay asleep until the next morning. Anyone else have kiddos that get migraines?

Re: Does anyone have children with migraines?

I do, my son has gotten migraines since grade school and I deal with chronic daily migraine. I am sorry to hear about your daughter. I would recommend that you get her in to see a neurologist. A Dr can help you with identifying triggers and managing her pain. Some things you can do at home is increase her potassium intake (things like bananas), add B vitamins and magnesium supplements to her diet. These are all non-medicine migraine treatments
