Headaches in children
rosemwood posted:
My daughter is 10yrs old. She's had headaches for a while. She went to a Neurologist over a year ago and he said he would only put her on medication if the headaches got worse.
Both my husband and I do suffer from headaches also. Can headaches be hereditary? Also if she doesn't eat enough protein do you think this could be her problem too? I've been trying to have her drink more water because a PA told me headaches are a cause of dehydration but when she's in school it's hard for her to drink a bunch of water.
plazadental responded:
Most headaches in children are due to an illness, infection, cold, or fever. Other conditions that can cause headaches include sinusitis. However, it has also been found through the studies that 70% children and adolescents who have migraines in their immediate family member also suffer from the migraines. Four out of five migraine sufferers have a family history of migraines. But since you haven't cleared in your post that whether both of you are migraine patient or the cause of headache is something different. It would be difficult to say the cause of headache in your daughter.
