In society today, parents have so many things to worry about when it comes to their children. The behavior of other children is usually high on any parents’ concern list. The stress caused to a child by a bully is unimaginable and it is difficult to ease their pain, and both emotional and physical stress. Now imagine helping your child cope with an unseen bully who strikes viciously without warning. Most parents would risk life and limb to protect their child, but what happens if this vicious bully is not flesh and blood, but an acute medical condition?
On the government sponsored anti-bullying website, bullying is defined as unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children, which involve a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Likewise, migraine is defined as a recurrent throbbing headache that typically affects one side of the head and is often excruciating pain accompanied by nausea or vomiting and disturbed vision. Migraine attacks are known to come on quickly and attack aggressively, usually with no warning. Migraines can be very frightening and can be hard to get a handle on for anyone, especially children.
Like a bully who terrorizes your child, causes pain and harms their self-esteem, frequent migraines and headache attacks often accompanied by nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, can sabotage your child’s well-being as well. Some people believe bullying is a part of growing up and it provides kids an opportunity to stand up to those who are stronger than them. In the same way, people often dismiss children’s migraines believing they will go away on their own. Unfortunately, migraines often persist long into adulthood for many sufferers as a matter of fact, half of all adults with migraines had their first attack before the age of 12. Frequent migraines and headaches can have long-term negative consequences as they often hinder your child’s performance at school, damage their self-esteem and lead to depression.
It is almost certain that children who suffer from migraine headaches have the same stress in their lives as children who are terrorized by bullies at school. When a child is bullied, they experience daily fear, knowing the terror is coming, much like migraine sufferers live with the stress of knowing an onset could arise at any time. Victims of bullying feel trapped, helpless and small. Unable to deal with their problem, they display physical symptoms like stress headaches, stomach-ache, agitation, restlessness, changes in appetite, dizziness, and general aches and pains. Psychological symptoms often include irritability, anxiety, sadness, trouble sleeping, and tiredness in the mornings, loneliness, helplessness, and feeling isolated.
Children with recurrent migraines experience these same symptoms and are very likely to miss school and other activities. Research shows almost 80% of children who suffer from migraines have trouble coping with normal day-to-day routines. The sense of vulnerability caused by migraines hinders their performance in school and causes frequent emotional changes, such as anxiety and sadness. Only frequent migraine sufferers know the ultimate sacrifices you have to make in your daily life in order to deal with the pain they bring. Wondering and worrying about the next migraine attack when you feel helpless affects the entire family and is debilitating to both parents and children.
Help and Hope for Children with Migraines
No parent wants to see their child suffer. But so often parents feel helpless too and do just that, standby and watch their child suffer a migraine attack. This is because Children do not have many safe options when it comes to fighting migraines. Many prescription and OTC medications are difficult for adults to tolerate much-less children. Many medications also, just don’t work. So what is a parent to do?
First of fall, never dismiss symptoms of migraine in children. Preschool children may or may not have head pain and merely look ill with abdominal pain and vomiting. They may become irritable, cry, seek out a darkened room and often sleep an hour after onset. After the age of 5 children often experience migraines similar to adults; pulsating pain on one side of the head, visual disturbances (aura), vertigo, and sensitivity to light, sound and smells.
