Headaches are very common--not just in adults, but in children, too. While there are some good treatments, children often suffer because their headaches go undiagnosed and untreated. In this interview, Dr. Jack Gladstein describes the causes, symptoms and treatments for children with migraine headaches, as well as the roles of stress, sleep and genetics on headaches.
