Fatigue And Lethargy
Fatigue and lethargy are common symptoms of an abdominal migraine, though like the rest of the symptoms on this list, it's easy to assume a child could be suffering from almost anything if symptoms are isolated. Fatigue can occur easily, and it's noticeable when a child wants to sleep more than usual. They might fall asleep while lying down in the morning, afternoon, or at night. They might be more difficult to wake up in the morning or after a nap, and they might seem lethargic all day. Many parents mistake the lethargy as a sign their child is coming down with a cold or the flu. When it's associated with serious stomach pain in the midline area, however, it's a big indicator a child might suffer from abdominal migraines. If parents have any questions about how this affects their child, it's time to call the pediatrician and ask what they can do to make sure their child is receiving the proper treatment.
