Full Question: My daughter constantly gets headaches near her eyes. She has has her eyes tested but they seem fine. She gets these headaches at anytime of the day and at any time of the month. Taking headache tablets do little to help. Any suggestions? Thanks, Pauline. Answer: Dear Pauline; Have you had your daughter to her doctor about these headaches yet? If he has no answers, move on to a neurologist at least, a headache specialist at best. In the meantime, if she's taking "headache tablets" more than a couple of days a week, it would be a good idea to cut back on or discontinue those as they may be exacerbating her problem by causing medication overuse headaches, aka rebound headaches. See Medication Overuse Headache: When the Remedy Backfires for more information on this. Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert If you need to find a headache and Migraine specialist, please see our listing of patient recommended specialists .

I couldn’t stay that way long because I needed to vomit. My father brought a large bowl from the kitchen so I didn’t have to get up. Vividly, I remember him wiping my face with a cold cloth and gently rubbing my back until I fell asleep. My mother had these “headaches,” too. At the age of six, I didn’t really understand them, but I knew my mother would sometimes be in bed with her headaches for days. My parents have told me that the pediatrician said I was “high-strung” and had Migraines li...
