Migraines are more than just a headache. Symptoms include debilitating pain, dizzy spells, and sensitivities to light or sound. Unlike traditional headaches, migraines often completely incapacitate a patient for hours or even days at a time. While some patients are diagnosed with migraines as a teen or adolescents, others may be adults before their first migraine. Left untreated, migraines can cause depression, neck stiffness, fatigue, hyperactivity, and extreme irritability. It is important to treat migraines as a part of both your physical and mental health. The treatment for migraines in adolescents can vary from that of adults. It can be challenging to find the right fit for your life.
