Every morning for the past few days. Its at the top of his head. In time it does go away. Idk if he's not sleeping well or not. At first, I just blew it off as a headache but now I'm starting to Ger concerned.



I'm calling the doctor at 8. Just for some reassurance.



He's 7. Has this happened to anyone else?



Update:
Doctor appt earlier. He will have a MRI and had some blood work done. His eye is doing something weird when he looks up. Doctor noticed it during the follow the light test. It doesn't want to move up. So that with the headaches. MRI. Probably tomorrow she said.

Does he have allergies. I know this time of year my allergies get bad and I seem to have sinus infections that last the whole season it feels like and I always have allergies. Or maybe sleep apnea. I would take him to the doctor

Yes. The only thing he drinks is water and milk.

 When I wake up in the mornings with headaches, it is ALWAYS due to dehydration.

Maybe try a new pillow. If his head and neck are not getting good support that can cause headaches.

It could be pressure from stuffiness. Does he feel like his nose is stuffy and itchy eyes. I even feel my ears itchy deep down where I can't scratch.

I don't see how he could be dehydrated. He has a water bottle and it gets refilled at least twice during the day.its a taller bottle.

No. He says it's just his head. I gave him some chewable tyelnol and he went to lay back down while it kicks in.

He said it feels like the top of his head is being squooshed.
