What is Abdominal Migraine
While Abdominal Migraines are classed as a migraine, they very rarely will involve a headache. This may be because episodes that involve headaches are frequently diagnosed as a common migraine. Along with Cyclical Vomiting Syndrome, Abdominal Migraines are described as a ‘Recurrent Gastrointestinal Disturbance’.
It is possible for Abdominal Migraines to be experienced by adults, however, they are far more common in children – with the average age being between 3 and 10 years old. Children who experience Abdominal Migraine have been linked to experiencing classic migraines in adulthood.
