Abdominal Migranes

My niece has been hospitalized- throwing up for weeks. Here's her diagnosis- finally- and it's something that I have never heard of. This is from my brother:

As you all are aware, we are at TC Thompson Children’s Hospital in Chattanooga. The GI doctors have diagnosed her with Abdominal Migraines. I had never heard of this but it seems that children with family histories of migraines sometimes have vomiting and abdominal pain that is caused from the same thing that causes migraines in other people. It can be regulated with medication. They started the meds last night and let her eat supper and breakfast with no signs of nausea as of yet. If this pattern continues, we will be discharged to go home late this afternoon.

We all hope you feel better soon, Rachel!
