My daughter has suffered with abdominal migraines since birth! Several hours of nonstop clear foamy throwing up until she can finally sleep. The best regiment we have found is rectal Tylenol and Zofran. An emergency room doctor recommended this because they can't send home the injections they use. Oral medications come right back up. I believe constipation and exhaustion are triggers but they are very unpredictable.

My daughter for nearly 2 years was suffering really bad stomach pain. Our first thought was appendicitis but had scan and all fine. She had lots of time off but now we make her go to school. She goes very pale sometimes and a bad head after or with it. She is under hospital care but to see her every 6 months. This is a joke! One Accident and Emergency doctor said it could be abdominal migraine but another said very slim chance, as not many children get this. I suffer with migraine, as do my mom and my eldest daughter. I need advice. It is terrible when she's screaming in pain.
