Migraine is a common and disabling primary headache disorder that occurs in about 3% of younger school-age children to about 20% of older teens. It is usually one-sided head pain, but in children and teens, it is located on both sides and usually occurs in the front and sides of the head as well. A migraine may last from 1 hour up to 3 days. The pain is described as pulsating or throbbing and generally occurs with symptoms like nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and noise, and dizziness.
