Headaches in Children 2 of 2
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.
Part two of this two-part program addresses the following topics:
- When to bring the child to a doctor
- Effective treatments for migraines in children
- Why early treatment is important
- Side effects of headache medicines
- Helping children manage stress
- Do children outgrow headaches?
Dr. Gladstein is the head of the Pedicatric Headache Clinic at the University of Maryland Hospital for Children in Baltimore and a professor of pediatrics and neurology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.
