We were recently contacted by a represented working with the Diamond Headache Clinic, the oldest and largest headache center, who put together a presentation about different types of migraine headaches and symptoms in children.
Children between the ages of 5 and 9 often experience abdominal headaches, which can develop into more severe headaches later in life. As many spoonies become diagnosed at a young age, we thought this could be a great resource for our community
We have included a hyperlink to the Diamond Headache Clinic within the first sentence above. Many of those who battle Gastroparesis receive a diagnosis of abdominal migraines and / or migraines either before or during their diagnostic process. Migraines are extremely debilitating and present in a myriad of ways. The types of migraines differ but the general consensus is that migraines stem from a neurological disorder.
Thank you to the Diamond Headache Clinic for sharing this presentation and for allowing us to advocate in an area that effects patients within our community and beyond.
