Migrains in preschooler? PIOG update 1 & 2

  In the last few months my 5 year old preschooler has been having severe migrains. He throws up from the pain, screams, writhes and tries to claw his eyes out. He had another episode tonight. I don't want to freak out. He isn't scheduled to see his doctor until September, but should I make him an appointment soon?

UPDATE #1

He is scheduled for a CT scan for tomorrow morning. His doctor has him on some medication currently as well, and we will continue the medication until his doctor tells us other-wise. Thank you everyone. I'll keep you posted on what the CT says when we find out the results.

UPDATE #2

I just got the phone call from the clinic saying the results are in. He has a polyp in his sinus cavity that is blocking his sinuses from draining correctly. He will continue the medication he is on and he has a follow up with the ENT to see about removing it so that he never has these again.

I'm so glad it isn't anything more serious. Again, thank you everyone.

I would. Since the migraines seem to be hurting a lot. The sooner the better

 Yes take him in. If he is in a lot of pain now then he should be seen right away even if you have to go to the ER. That kind of pain even for me is horrid. I only get them on occassion but I just want to pop my head off and put a new one on.
