Abdominal migraines aren't headaches. As their name suggests, they make your belly ache instead. But they often happen as a reaction to the same triggers as migraine headaches. They can hurt a lot and cause nausea, cramps, and often vomiting. Kids whose family members get migraines are more likely to get abdominal migraines. About 2 in 100 children do; they're rare in adults. More girls get them than boys. And kids who have abdominal migraines typically get migraine headaches when they get older. You should consult with your doctor if you develop a migraine headache. Keyword: abdominal migraine; abdominal migraine+
