Migraine in 8 year old

It looks like the crappy migraine gene was not kind enough to skip DS, but of all the rest of us in the family who've had them, none of us started this young. My main concern right now is his teacher - he tried to go to the nurse and she didn't let him (I'm guessing because it was so close to time to go home). I know how hard it is to get someone who has never had one to understand how bad it is. If you have a young child who has them, how do you deal with the school?

  • you need to get in touch with the teacher and explain the situation to her. Do the same with the nurse.

  • no advice on school but possible cause

    my daughter can not have artifical food dyes made from coal tar = LAKE DYES
    since taking red #40 out of her diet

    i did not have a migraine for 5 months,then did experiment, ate food with red 40 for a few days, i then got 2.5 day headache, used to get these quite often...no other research for me

    no red #40 in what i consume = no migraines

    hope this info helps one person avoid migraines
