...not looking for medical advice just some friendly help on the subject of migraine.
My 12 year old son has been getting migraines for approx 1 year now, few and far between but incredibly severe when he does. Went to the doctors when he first had them and was told that he has to learn when one is starting and try and nip it in the bud with paracetomol and ibruprofen. trouble is he gets so bad that he ends up throwing up ( just done it all over the kitchen units ) and crying with severe pain.
We have noticed that chocolate has triggered it and was wondering if any other sufferers have a particular food that triggers theirs.
What do you take? and as a non-sufferer how do I explain to a 12 year old how to spot the early signs?
