I'm sitting in a hospital room with my 16yr old she has had a migraine for about 2 weeks now with no relief with any of the meds. Not how I want to spend my bday but maybe what they try tomorrow will help. they are running test to make sure it's just a migraine. Going on 3 days with little sleep due to the meds making her sick as can be. She gets some sleep but not me. well have to help her shower....will update when I can

So sorry you've had to spend your birthday in the hospital, but sure hope your dd is feeling better soon and they find out the reasons.


My niece also suffered with migraines that lasted that long, and after trials and tests (also was hospitalized), found they were triggered by certain foods she ate (like Colleen was saying).

We are out of that place and she still has the headache and not any better. the test are done and they did find a spot in her one sinse cavity and it's in the bony area they said repeat test in 6 months. I'm going tocontact my old ENT and askhim to review the test for me and tell me what he things. I trust this me with my life as he helped me find the help I needed or I would be blind today.

I know about migraines and I can tell you that they are horrible. I will be praying for your daughter. I hope they find the right meds for her headaches. And, that you get peace of mind. I will be praying for both for your whole family. God bless you all. Love, Gwen

I really don't blame you at all. I would rather get a second opinion than not be sure at all. If there was a spot on the cat scan I would want to know what it was. Better safe than to wait and it be something that you could have treated early. So, I would do the samething if I were you. Just know that I will be praying you find it isn't anything big. And, that they can just treat it as a headache. Or a sinus infection. But, keep us posted no matter what. Okay? Love, & Prayers.

I wanted to update all of you....she still has her headache and it's day 20. I just found her old Ped. and will be calling him tomorrow. I don't think he will turn us down in looking at her scan. He not only is a Ped he does Pediatric cancer, & pediatric brain tumor.


We just learned that the Dr that saw her didn't tell us about the one spot they saw.....it's in the area we were most worried about.
