    Answer:

     

    Dear Concerned Mom;

     

    No, this is not typical of headaches or Migraines, but may be part of a Migraine with some complicated neurological issues if the pupil size changes stay after the Migraine is gone. You may want to seek the opinion of a headache and Migraine specialist to be sure. There's a link to our directory of recommended specialists below.

     

    Good luck,
    John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
