My daughter completed her tx of Clarvis the first of Oct. 2010. She now is having severe headaches (one lasted 3 weeks). She has had blood work, MRI, and medication does not help. She is not allowing this to effect her school or physical activities but she complains of a headache daily and takes Midrine or Tylenol daily. Any suggestions?
It could be a migraine or a cluster. I very much hope it's neither. Clusters are easy to spot. They occur on only one side of the head and irritate a nerve that snakes down around the eye, the side of the face, and down to the upper wisdom tooth. Without oxygen or Imitrex they can last up to a couple of hours. They often come every day at the same time. Migraines affect far more people and more women than men. And yes, a child can have migraines or clusters. Auras are a symptom of migraines. If she somtimes sees a colored fringe around her field of vision that looks like stained glass or something you see in a kaliedoscope, she probably has migraines. But if she doesn't see them it still doesn't mean she doesn't have migraines. Has your daughter seen a headache specialist? Usually they're neurologists. All big cities have them along with larger towns. Good luck to your daughter. I can't imagine a three week headache. My heart goes out to her.
