Does your child suffer with migraines.
Migraine is often misunderstood and it can be very challenging for children who suffer. There are many symptoms including head pain, pallor, tingling and dizziness. Indeed, many children experience abdominal migraine in which nausea or stomach pains are the main symptoms and they may not have a headache at all. Unfortunately, it affects 1 in 10 children throughout the UK and causes 2.75 million school days to be lost each year. We have been working closely with Migraine Action (the national leading support charity for those affected) to provide information for our teachers and pupils. We wanted to make you aware of the support available as Migraine Action have a wealth of resources and information including information booklets, migraine diaries for children and a confidential helpline, which is open 10am-4pm weekdays on 08456 011 033. You can also download their new booklet ‘Ride the Lightning’ on the link or speak to Gayle Wood in school who has got some hard copies. Top tips from Migraine Action Never make assumptions Help your child to keep a diary of symptoms and attacks Provide a safe and comfortable environment Find out what they would like you to do when they have an attack Ensure that they are sleeping enough, eating regularly and getting fresh air Encourage them to take part in some gentle exercise each day Check for any potential triggers at home and in the classroom If you suspect that they might have migraine, book a GP appointment …And remember, it is not just a headache!
