Headaches in Children | Headache

Headaches in children are common and usually not serious. Causes include migraines, stress and tension headaches, trauma, sinus disease, and eye problems. Certain foods with nitrate preservatives and MSG (monosodium glutamate) can trigger headaches. Brain tumors in children as a cause for headaches are extremely rare, and are usually associated with additional neurologic symptoms such as dizziness, weakness of the arms or legs, and lack of coordination.
