She is 10 years old. She has been see at the hospital, the diagnosed Visual Disturbance Migraines. After weighing and measuring her they said 1 paracetamol. She was on Pizotifen for three months, however these have not been taken for approx a year, but this is the worse migraine she has suffered. They felt it might be hormone related. Her MRI came back clear.

Paracetamol will not help in migraines.

You should consult her doctor again, she needs treatments like Ergot tablets or nasal sprays which are specific for migraines and will help her.

If you cannot get an immediate appointment you should go to the hospital and ask for this.

An element of stress and anxiety is often related to headaches in children, you should also take her to the counsellor for this.

Hope I have been able to clarify the situation for you and helped in resolving your query.
