  • I'm not sure but I would be very worried and take him to the doctor right away.

  • It's possible he could have migraines at night. There is such a thing as juvenile migraines. BUT I would suggest you mention it to your doctor. Does he play or watch a lot of TV? It could be over stimulation, which is what happens to my son when he plays too many video games, which he normally isn't allowed. (He's 8)

  • No he is always on the go,he would never sit still long enough to watch tv... He is a outside baby..

  • This might be over simplifying it, but maybe he has a sunburn on his head?

  • I would consult a doctor. Kids that young can get headaches, and you might want to get to the root of the cause before things get any worse.

  • My younger nephew got headaches and migraines very early on, the poor boy is 4 and knows when to take his medicine, to go sit in the dark, to turn the tv volume down... I think the sunburn is a good thing to check for too!

  • Take him to the doctor. He's clearly unhappy and not making this up. It's best to find out what the problem is.
