Most of the time when we think about migraines we think of adults, but doctors say that migraines often go misdiagnosed in children. Pediatric neurologists say migraines in children are actually quite common. Studies show migraines occur in 5 percent of children under 10 and in 10 percent of teens and preteens.

"I'm talking about recurrent headaches, where they're well in between them, but they're bad enough that they are either vomiting or they consistently have to go to sleep, turn off the lights," said Dr. Wendy Mitchell at Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

The Food and Drug Administration has yet to approve a drug for children, so experts say the focus has to be on prevention. "They know if they stay up late, and they're late in the morning, they skip breakfast, they don't like whatever the school's serving for lunch, so they haven't eaten and then they get home at 4 o'clock and then they have a terrible headache," said Mitchell. If the episodes happen occasionally, Mitchell recommends giving your child a caffeinated beverage accompanied by acetominophen or Tylenol. If it happens much more often, parents should keep a headache diary to track the triggers and talk to their doctor about a pediatric pain management program.

Kids with migraines often grow up to be come adults with migraines. That's why experts say learning to prevent them and find ways to manage them early will help keep them under control.
