Chronic Headache - 11-yr old girl

Need help! For the past 4-6 months, my daughter, age 11 has been complaining of headaches. These headaches are more the nagging type, not so much the debilitating types. Average frequency: 3-4 times a week.

After keeping a record of her symptoms over a few weeks, we made the following observations:

1. Headache affects both temples.
2. Typically starts at 2pm and lasts for 2 hours (sometimes upto 4 hrs).
3. Severity varies from mild to heavy (mostly mild)
4. Headache occurs almost always in school
5. No illness, fever, nausea, vomiting, vision issues. The girl is in good health and in good spirits otherwise.
6. Fussy eater (tends to avoid vegetables); often does not eat well at school but has gotten a lot better now.
7. No known allergies
8. No painkillers given but balm applied on some days.
9. No family history of migraines.

I'm hoping that homeopathy can find us a solution.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
The first remedy you should try is Calc.Phos 6X.

Give her three tablets, thrice daily, for one week.

Stop after one week, and report progress.

get her eyes tested first.

it may so happen that her eyes are strained looking at the board.

she may be anaemic and at this time girls need to take good amount of food rich in protein, iron and other vitamins. this is because the secondary growth will start now.

try to check out the above two factors and then come back.

if the above factors are negetive, the suitable homoeopathic remedies could be suggested based on totality.

Yes.Please do what Rishimba is suggesting.

Calc.phos is a tissue salt, and is the head remedy for the headaches of school going childern.

It will not do any harm.You can try it out, while attending to Rishimba's suggestions.

Thanks Sajjadakram for the analysis.

I know about Nat.mur too, but it is not advisable to start the treatment with Nat.mur, as sometimes it fearfully aggravates.

That is why I suggested Calc.Phos. I gave calc.phos for headaches of many school going childern, and most of them are helped.

Nash talks highly about Calc.phos for the headaches of school going childern.Of course, he mentions Nat.mur too.

It is always better to try with Calc. phos, and think of Nat.mur ,if it fails to relieve.

I think this chart will be helpful, but i agree with the suggestion of MURTHY.

So many persons prescribing.
Please give her a dose of Nat mur 30 1 dose only everyday in the morning and two doses of Ruta30 after she is back from school with a gap of 3 hrs between both the doses.
The schoolchildren of this age normally have a lot of eye strain as they are suddenly growing up
Give her for a week and her headaches will disappear.
Maybe later you can give her ruta 30 for longer time
Please report after a week

If the child has constipation then Natrum Mur is definately the choice.

Ruta for eye strain ...school children have a lot of stress too, not just adults.

Nat.mur is very likely to aggravate the condition.

Better to try with safer remedy ,calc.phos 6x,first.

I prescribed this medicine for headaches of many school going childern, and it worked.

Give it a try ,before anything else.

hi Robina

If so many people come forward to presribe, the label of 'resident prescribers' can no longer be used.

is it not?

Better for the patient to have various options.

If he can't decide,he will anyway go and see a competent classical homeopath.

good for the patient.

gavinimurthy last decade
No feedback. It is essential that the prescribers come to know what medicines have been taken and what is the result-i.e. there has been a cure or not
robina last decade
Most of the times you won't get any feedback. But, it is good for the practitoner, as the exercise will be stimulating, and it is like another case, for which the first prescription is made.

So, you will get more experience, which is better for the practitioner. His thinking process will improve.The more cases he handles, the better.
