We went to the specialist today at Primary's, she said that it is most likely migraines. When I hear the word migraine I automatically think of people who can't do anything for days because their head hurts so bad that when they move they get nauseated. Well in children a migraine can present itself in many different ways and doesn't always produce an excruciating headache. It can cause body aches (remember I said that he has said that he needs to go to the doctor when he has an episode?), upset stomach, vomiting, and a few other things I can't remember right now. So, we will be tracking his "headaches" and treating them with Ibuprofen, if we are having to give him Ibuprofen more than 3x a week then we may have to try a preventative daily medication. And, of course just keep watching him especially during his episodes to make sure he is responsive and doesn't lose function of any of his body. So its a relief... I hope this is it and we can figure things out.
