My 16 year old, academically gifted student has just been diagnosed with chronic migraines by a pediatric neurologist. We are meeting next week to discuss a 504 plan for her(CA schools) and I want to know if we should be looking for anything else besides modified and extended time for makeup work. Her teachers have been supportive thus far, but with no end in sight, we are looking at long term accommodations, and make sure we have her covered.
As far as her migraine issues go... Today is her 18th day of current migraine pain. She simply can't function to do any work right now. She has been told to only take rescue meds (Maxalt) 2 days a week if neccessary. Doctor thinks she has rebound migraines from Imitrex. How can I let her suffer like this? Any insight would be appreciated.
Hi, just saw your post. I have a 15 yr old son with chronic migraines. He is now in his 3rd month of having daily migraines. We decided to do homebound schooling, using the online option here in VA. It allows him to work when he is able to, without the pressure of trying to make it through the day while having a migraine. We just finished our sleep study eeg, waiting on the results. I know it is tough seeing your child suffer every day, hang in there, it is a process.
