- What Can Be Done For Children With Migraine Headaches?

 – June 10, 2012  –– 

Dr. Mark Green writes: Yes, kids get migraines too. Close to 60 percent of children are prone to headaches and almost 10 percent of girls and six percent of boys have migraine. Migraines can be seen in children as young as five years old. The reason people have migraines is likely a combination of genetics and environmental triggers. If you have migraine there’s a 50/50 shot that your child will have migraine too.
