Headaches in Children
avatar
Aquaholic40 posted:
My 12 year old daughter has visited the nurses office at her school daily for the past week and a half. Before that, she was going on a pretty regular basis just not daily. She is complaining of a headache associated with a faint/dizzy feeling when she gets up. Her eyes have been checked and all is well there. Is is possible that this is probably just something minor and can be caught by her family physician or what else could be causing this?

It could be a number of things so I would take her back to the doctor and demand test to be ran on her. However, one thing that comes to my head is Vertigo... There are many articles on Wed Md related to this condition.

I would take her to a nerologist and have them do an MRI. Not to scare you but a little girl in my community had headsches and dizzness and she has brain cancer. I get migranes and got an MRI to rule out anything serious. I was also treated by the neurologist for my headaches. This could aslo be puberity it tends to cause headaches in some girls. I have a 15 year old daughter thats why I know that. hope this helped...good luck..
