Health Tip: When Your Child Has a Headache

  • Getting insufficient sleep, or rapidly changing the patterns of sleep.
  • Missing meals or becoming dehydrated.
  • Taking certain medications.
  • Being under stress.
  • Experiencing hormonal changes.
  • Spending too much time in front of the TV or computer.
  • Receiving a mild head injury or having an infection.
  • Spending a long time riding in the car.
  • Inhaling strong odors.
  • Smoking.
  • Consuming caffeine.
