Running Around the House, and Having a Migraine at the Same Time
Often it was hard to believe that our son was experiencing a migraine. One moment he would be crying out in pain, irritable, and even oppositional; and the next moment, he would be running around the house playing. He did not look like he was experiencing a migraine, but he was. I learned from my son's neurologist that sometimes children experience migraines that do not last more than a few minutes. In my son's case, he was still having a migraine, but the pain he was experiencing had decreased to a tolerable level or his attention was so focused on something else that he didn't sense the pain.
