Recurrent Abdominal Pain in Children May be A Result of Abdominal Migraine in up to 15% of Children

May 26th, 2011

Abdominal Migraine Pain in ChildrenAbdominal migraines may occur in both adults and children.  A new study reported in the medical journal “Headache” states that up to 15% of children who experience recurrent abdominal pain may actually have “abdominal migraine” and that for those children in this group, migraine treatment may help reduce or resolve the recurrent pain.

If your child has been diagnosed with migraine  (which can also result in cyclic vomiting and disturbed sleep) any recurrent abdominal pain he/she experiences is 4X more likely to be “abdominal migraine” as opposed to another condition that causes abdominal pain.

It is important to note that the study authors stated that “abdominal migraine” is not well addressed in medical school or during residency and is therefore likely to be missed by many physicians as a potential diagnosis.

The authors also stated that children with just abdominal migraine symptoms are more likely to suffer from migraines as they reach adulthood.

Though there are no studies showing that any of the current prescription drugs used to treat migraine pain, help with “abdominal migraine”, it makes sense, especially when children are involved, to try a dietary supplement regimen created just for kids with all types of migraines (classic, complicated, abdominal…)- Children’s MigreLief and MigreLief-NOW.  MigreLief supplements are safe and gentle for children 2 years of age or above.
