Luckly, my two daughters Ju Ju and Soap have been relatively healthy without having to make a serious trip to a hospital (knock on wood!) However, for the past three months or so, my oldest daughter Ju Ju has complained about headache and often lays in bed after coming back from school. She got sick from headache at least four times throwing up - She got really sick on Thanksgiving or last week. Funny thing is she feels better once she throws up.
Even tonight, she was fine at first, but once she started eating dinner, she complained saying "mommy.. I have a headache.." and stopped eating and laid on the couch. She took a hot shower, but she cried, "I want to go to bed..." So, JT ran to Walgreens and got her Tylenol and now she's sleeping.
She was never like this until she started school in August. We are thinking she maybe need a glasses, so we're taking her to the eye doctor. But if having a pair of glasses won't make the headache go away, then, what?
I've been online for quite sometime and it seems pediatric migraine are relatively common and starts from an early age... After the eye doctor, we're taking Ju Ju to her doctor. I hope there's nothing seriously wrong with her. When a cheerful kid who runs for a soccer ball gets sick like that, it does worry me.... Yes, definitely makes her mommy nervous...
