Often when your child is experiencing a migraine headache you may not recognize it as such. This is partly because they might not be able to communicate their symptoms very well and partly because not all migraines present the same way. Would you know how to recognize your child’s migraines?
Migraine headaches are a very serious symptom of chronic Lyme disease and other chronic tick-borne infections. Migraines can range from mild to very severe and when associated with a tick-borne disease they can be crippling.
I was asked by the Diamond Headache Clinic if I could review their slideshow about common types of migraine headaches and symptoms. The Diamond Headache Clinic is the oldest and largest headache center located in Chicago providing a multidisciplinary approach utilizing a balance of medical therapies, lifestyle adjustments, and alternative treatments.
I was impressed with this slideshow and asked the clinic if they could provide those in the Lyme community with more information specific to migraines caused by tick-borne disease. While Lyme disease can induce migraine headaches sometimes these types of headaches have other causes such as food allergies or intolerance. It’s important to recognize them and find their root cause.
