Yes, kids get headaches, too

By Kelley Luckstein

With all the pressures we experience, whether at work or stuck in traffic, it's not surprising that every now and then the pounding pain of a headache strikes. But you might be surprised at just how common headaches are in children.

 

"Ten percent of children suffer from migraine headaches," says Dr. Kenneth Mack, a pediatric neurologist at Mayo Clinic. "Probably a higher percentage suffers from tension-type headaches. Fortunately, most of these children will have infrequent headaches."
