While children often complain of headaches, some experience frequent, debilitating headaches, that are in fact Migraines. Migraine headaches often include other symptoms such as sensitivity to light or sounds, and are sometimes accompanied by nausea. The negative impacts of chronic migraines in children extends well beyond just physical pain, but can also affect them emotionally and academically as well.
A research study is now underway in Bowling Green to evaluate an investigational medication aimed to treat frequent, episodic migraine headaches in children, aged 6 to 17. In order to be considered, your child must have a history of experiencing chronic, severe headaches for at least the past 6 months.
