Finding the Right Doctor
It took me a while to find a doctor who took my son's complaints seriously. It wasn't until I took my son to an allergist that my son's complaints were investigated thoroughly. It's important to keep searching if your child is complaining. After consulting with the allergist, my son was seen by a pediatric Ear, Nose and Throat doctor. This ENT doctor was the first person to recommend that I take my son to a neurologist. I actually tried 3 different pediatricians until I found one who also recommended that I take my son to a neurologist. Unfortunately, many pediatricians are not aware of childhood migraines, and if they are, they are not aware of the diverse symptoms that are exhibited by children with migraines.
