SHOW NOTES

Headaches are tough to deal with regardless of age, but the migraine headache is probably the most feared one of them all. As a parent, you want to prevent pain in your children as much as possible, but sometimes with headaches you feel like there’s nothing that you can do. That’s why in this episode Dr. Meg talks with Keith DiMarino and Dr. Donna Stephenson about Keith’s daughter that struggled with a migraine headache for over 100 days in a row. Dr. Meeker gets great information from Keith about what it’s like to be a parent of a child with migraine headaches and has informational discussions with Dr. Donna Stephenson about what to look for and how she treats patients with migraine headaches. Also in this episode, Dr. Meg gives you her points to ponder that you can start using right away! Dr. Meeker also answers a question from a mom about her 17 year old daughter who she feels wants nothing to do with her.
