My son who is 7 has been having headaches for the last month and they are getting more and more frequent. Today he came home from his fathers house and he said his head was killing him. He was nauseaus and gagging. Tonight after he went to bed, he woke up crying cause it came back. Has anyone else had this problem. i'm taking him to his ped in the morning, but i'm just worried about him.

i hope they can figure it out for you guys because someone that young should not be having headaches for no reason!

My nephew josh used to get them all the time. They would drop him to the floor and make him scream. They put him on a child dose of imitrex and he hasn't had one since.

good thing you're taking him to the ped. in the morn., because that's definitely not normal for a 7 yr. old.
Hope he's better soon! :wink:

Maybe you should take him to the doctor my best friend had Menigitis(sp) and it killed her. Only because she got it twice which they say the is rare. She had headaches for weeks also.

Thanks. Me too. I fdont want to assume the worst of course but this kid is never sick(except for allergies), and for him to want to lay on the couch, no loud noises, it just makes me worry

Well i have an update. I took him to his ped and he said he thought it was migraines, gave me some type of antihistimine that is supposed to help with them, and if that didnt work within 2 weeks, to take him to his neurologist and get a brain scan. Good news is today he is headache free. And he got a day off of school..lol
