Q.

Headaches and children

My 7 year old daughter suffers from sever headaches, this occurs about 5-6 times a year. She runs a very high fever when this happens and the headaches are very bad. Should Ibe concerned, she has seen a doctor and he suggested it is her sinus and once it was a viral infection.

Should I suggest that more tests be conducted?

A.

Paediatrician

I believe that headaches in children need to be properly diagnosed.As she has a fever with the headaches she could have sinus infection which can cause headache. It would be best to have her seen by a paediatrician so that a definite diagnosis is made and correct treatment advised.
