Re: 13 year old with constant migraines - advice please
I agree whole heartedly with the magnesium. It can sometimes cause intestinal problems, i.e. diahrea (sp). There is a magnesium that you spray on your skin called Dermamag. It is absorbed through the skin and bypasses the intestines; therefore no intestinal problems.
Also try giving her Iron tablets. At 13 she could have already started her cycle or will soon. Many women suffer from menstral migraines often brought on by low iron levels due to mensis. If you opt to give her the Iron, it's best to use for a few days prior to menstration until a couple of days into it.
Also, her hormones at that age are on constant high, so let her know that once her body adjusts to the new hormones it is very likely that the migraines will level out and become less often.
Good luck, and please give her a hug. I feel for her.
