It looks as though my oldest son(trey,7 1/2) has inherited my migraines. I inherited them from my mother and remember them starting affecting me about the time I was 8-9 years old. That's not to say that I didn't have them when I was his age or younger, but just that's the age I can remember them starting.
Anyway, it seems that he's having one kick in tonight and at his age, there is simply nothing I can do for him, except to try and comfort him and get him to fall asleep so he can try to sleep it off. Those of you that know where I'm coming from, know how debilitating a migraine can be. God, I wish I could just take it from him. Just to look into his big blue eyes and see the pain he's going through and not being able to do anything is just killing me.
Sorry, just had to vent my frustration in not being able to help and feeling responsible...........
BTW, the pediatrician has confirmed this a couple of months back. We have to keep a log of when, where, what he ate before, activities, etc, etc.... That way we can look for any patterns or triggers. Hopefully, his aren't as random as mine and my mother's.
