Migraines during flares?

Recommended Posts

Hi. My ds is 16 and I've noticed that he tends to get migraines often in the beginning of his flares, which tend to taper off with time. Does anyone notice this in their child during a flare?

FWIW my DS15 does get headaches with flares. But he also gets sinus infections each time as well. Hard to tell what is sinus related, what is migraine and what is pure inflammation.

 

We have thought migraine because he has sort of an aura prior to the onset of a flare - he also gets more light sensitive such that sunlight hurts and "screens" cause discomfort (and of course he normally he loves his screens).

 

Back in our early days, he did not complain of headache but he has always been sensitive to things like rides at a fair or a trampoline. Flare or no flare, these things make his head hurt. The headaches with flares started after puberty.
