Migrane of a teen

Could someone help me to find a constitutional remedy for my 14 yrs old boy, who suffers serious migranes 2-3 times a week. He is on heavy painkillers and we must visit an emergency sometimes.

He is blond, blue eyes, short fot his age, weight is normal but there is belly fat.
He hates normal food, eats candy and everything sweet. Drinks quite much.
Passive, is not into sports.
Does not talk much, introvert. Very stubborn, but does not fight is there is no chance to win.
If possible, would be awake all nights and sleep in.
Loves everything soft, clothes must be flurry. Still likes teddy bears because they are soft.
When sick, even if catches cold, he vomits. And also when having a severe Migrane.

When he was 3-4 yrs old he was on Calcarea Carbonica. But what about now and on what doseage?

When the migrane is on, he takes 800 mg ibuprofeine and 1 mg paracetamol. When the pain is so much that he cries, then he takes 5 mg triptan.
He takes far too much painkillers and should start some preventative medicine daily. That's why he needs help.

Was it diagnosed as migraine by some doctor? Migraine word has become very common and fashionable in place of headache.I give some information below which you may find helpful.[MIGRANE]
Migraines are vascular headaches with reoccurring throbbing pain usually affecting one side of the head.
Classification of migraine:

About 20% of all the cases have classical migraine. Classical migraine are preceded by an aura – lightheadedness, sparkles or flash lights, super sensitivity to noise etc. this aura lasts for 15-45 minutes and is followed by pounding, throbbing headache.

Common migraines usually lack the aura, the warning symptoms. In common migraine the pain involves the whole head instead of just temples or one side of the head.

• Family history.

• Avoid stress and learn to cope with it. Practice yoga will help to deal with stress.

• Avoid alcohol, red wine champagne.
• Avoid coffee and caffeinated drinks. The more caffeine you consume more chances of having headaches.
• Sources of caffeine: coffee, tea, soft drinks, chocolate.
• Do not suddenly stop caffeine intake, you may get withdrawal symptoms. Reduce caffeine intake gradually.
• Do not drink or eat anything that has artificial sweeteners.
• Avoid canned foods and food with preservatives, foods with artificial colors.
• Avoid food you are allergic to. If you don`t know what food triggers the migraine, avoid foods listed above.
• Avoid monosodium glutamate, used in Chinese cooking.

• Avoid overexertion. Do regular moderate exercise.
• Avoid going out in sun; carry an umbrella or dark glasses when out in sun.

• Keep a diary to record when your headache occurs, symptoms, what you had eaten before the headache started, your food craving that that period, your sleep patterns, menstrual cycle and other factors. This will help you to find out what triggers your migraine, so that you can avoid that factor and prevent migraine.
• Consume plenty of water.
• During the attack drink 3 glasses of very cold water and with a cold pack go and lie in a dark quite room without a pillow. Take complete bed rest with minimal light, noise and odors helps a lot.
• Do regular exercise, it prevents migraine attacks.
• Get a regular massage around the neck and shoulders to relieve the tension in the muscles.
• Proper rest and sleep is needed for prevention of migraine attacks.
• Eat proper balanced diet.
• Eat at regular time.
• Eat frequent small meals and snacks through out the day, to maintain blood sugar levels.
– Eat high protein meals regularly.
– Avoid eating sweets.
• Eat organic food, fresh fruits and vegetables.
• Limit intake of fats. It should be below 30% of your total calorie intake.
• Increase intake of omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3 has tremendous effects on migraine. Especially the EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), it helps in production of thromboxane A3, which plays important role in controlling migraine, it makes the blood less sticky and thus blood flows with out resistance and it produces prostaglandins (a hormone like substance) that reduces inflammation of the blood vessels.
• Increase intake of omega 3 fatty acids and reduce intake of omega 6 fatty acids (ratio of 2:1), omega 3 fatty acid has anti-inflammatory properties.
• Consume lots of vitamin B complex, helps to control blood sugars. They also help in release of energy which boosts up the immune system.
• Increase intake of iron, iron deficiency with or without anemia cause headaches.
• Calcium and vitamin D are helpful in reducing headaches especially headaches after menses.
• Increase intake of magnesium, magnesium deficiency causes spasms of muscles also of the smooth muscles in the lining of the blood vessels. Thus magnesium will relax the vessels in the blood vessels and allow the blood to flow freely.
• Sources of Vitamin A: all yellow fruits and vegetables contain Vitamin A. Meat, fish, kidney and liver, liver oils of fish like cod, shark, and halibut are richest source of vitamin A
• Eat food rich in zinc:
• Consume carbohydrates with proteins.
• Limit intake of simple carbohydrates: sugar, all sugary foods, alcohol, soda etc.
• Take high fiber diet, take 12-20 gm of fiber - whole grains, bran, oat, green leafy vegetables, peas, beans, potatoes, raw vegetables, salads, dried fruits and fresh fruits.
• Eat fruits and vegetables with the skin.
• Include food rich in Vitamin E:
• You can consume feverfew, an herb that is said to alleviate migraine pains, it gives temporary relief but will not cure migraine.

YOU could now state your child's case even better.

Yes, he has been diagnosed by pediatric doctor in neurology. Most of the headaches are migrane and the rest to something else.

Treating the migrane would be easier if it was my own. But a teen boy doesn't care about the details. He does what he does, eats what he wants to eat.
