(HealthDay News) -- If your child gets frequent headaches, you can help the pediatrician diagnose the problem by keeping a log of the child's symptoms.
The Nemours Foundation says the log should include:
The frequency and severity of headaches, when they started and ended, and any other symptoms that accompanied the headaches.
Where the pain was felt, what it felt like (throbbing or dull, etc.), and changes in these headaches over time.
Any recent injuries, identifiable headache triggers, current medications or previous medical problems.
Your child's eating and sleeping habits.
Your child's allergies and any family history of headaches.
Any medication or activity that seems to help make the headaches go away.
