Seeing children and teenagers with symptoms of headache and migraine
The Headache Clinic at Texas Children's Hospital sees children and teenagers with symptoms of headache and migraine. Our treatment of headaches includes a range of therapies designed to reduce pain and improve a patient’s quality of life.
Although most occasional headaches are not a cause for concern, headaches accompanied by more serious symptoms including weakness, double vision, stiff neck, fever, vomiting, coordination problems, unusual sleepiness or lethargy may require further evaluation.
If your child’s headache is severe, if your child has never experienced a similar headache, or if the headache does not stop after one or two days, parents should contact a doctor, because any of these symptoms could be warning signals of a neurological problem.
