Evaluating Headaches in Children

When a child has a headache, you have to really explore what’s going on. Is it a psychological issue, or is it more than that it? Is it a problem associated with sinus pressure? Is it something to do with vision? Do they need glasses, or are they having headaches because it could be a neurological issue? The bottom line is you need to do careful exploration. If the headache is any more than a transient or short-term thing, you need to make sure you talk with a physician. Get the evaluation that’s necessary because we’re talking about neurological issues, and you can’t mess around with them.

We always appreciate your comments.
