Hi, I am new to this site and I hope that you gave give me some information. I have a 7 yr old daughter that may be suffering from cluster headaches. The doctor says that are migraines, but to me she has none of those symptoms. She does not get nauseated, she does not see "spots", and her pain in not all over, or on both sides. This is what she does have:--Pain in back of her head--Excrusiating pains for about 20 or so mins and then, she says it just throbs a little (her words: just a little one)--Her face kinda is swelled, with black circles under her eyes (sinus type symptoms)I just need to know what I could do, or where I could go to find more information. The doctor said because of her age, that she can't have any of the "adult" medicine. He said that it has not proven effective in children. So, what I am doing right now is just giving her a double dose of Children's Motrin.Can anyone, PLEASE give me some more information. I hate to doubt my doctors diagnosis, but she just doesn't have those symptoms. I have also thought about taking her to a Neurologist. Anyways......sorry so long....Thanks for your help.Joy
