Headache with nausea in the child – an occasion to see a doctor immediately
If the kid complains that he has a headache, do not postpone the visit to the pediatrician. And if an unpleasant symptom is accompanied by the fact that the child is sick, it is possible that he needs urgent help.
Headache is an unpleasant symptom that develops due to the expansion of the vessels of the brain or changes in their tone. The problem is more often manifested in adults on the background of fatigue, some vegetative or neurological disorders. However, children of preschool age began to complain more and more often of headaches. Blame everything for bad ecology, hobby for computer games, lack of adequate nutrition.
A hereditary factor deserves special attention. Some babies, like their parents, suffer from migraines. For a number of reasons (weather conditions, a busy day, bright emotions), the tone of the vessels may change. As a result, headache develops, combined with neurological and gastrointestinal manifestations. Initially, the child can feel emotionally excited, then there are flickers and flies before your eyes. Later develops headache and nausea.
Statistics indicate that about 5% of the child population suffers from migraine. To a greater extent, the development of unpleasant symptoms affects girls 6-10 years old. However, the disease occurs in male children.
In some cases, the state of cerebral vessels does not affect the manifestation of unpleasant health in children. Dizziness, nausea, pain in the temples – these symptoms can be the result of a dangerous pathological process in the body that requires immediate medical attention.
