(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.
