Dear newsgroup readers,

My son,a 10 years old kid,is suffering from a severe headache daily for the
pass two weeks. The family doctor couldn't find out what is the actual cause
of it. After clinical diagnosis, the doctor concluded that it is a migraine
headache and suggested the pain killer 'Tylenol' extra strength 500mg..

The "strange" headache happens everyday at around 11:00 am. and will be gone
in 2 to 4 hours after he took the Tylenol. The reason I called it "strange"
is because it happens at around the same time everyday, same location on the
head and when the headache is gone, he behaves like a normal kid.

The headache came lightly at first ,then became severe within minutes. By
then,my son started crying and covered himself with a light blanket.  It
seems like he is irritating by light and sound. His face and lips became
slightly red, his feet are pale.  An ice-pack on the head helps reducing the
pain a bit.

It has been like that everyday for two weeks already.  I could not find any
help, so far.

I really don't want my son to suffer like this and try my best to find the
cure. I am also suffering from this........

Please, if anyone who has experienced this "strange" headache, can provides
more information , or have any advice...please send email to me at
