I can remember my first migraine; I was 12 years old and at my best friend’s house for a sleepover. My head started aching terribly. My friend’s mother called my mom, who asked her to give me some ibuprofen and a nap. A few weeks later, it happened again. Then, the headaches came with alarming frequency. So, my mom took me to my pediatrician. I can’t remember the exact sequence of events, but I ultimately had an MRI of my head and a referral to a pediatric neurologist. And so began my life with migraines.
