Overview

Reassuring and authoritative, Dr. Sarah Cheyette, a pediatric neurologist and mother of two young children, helps parents navigate the sometimes frightening world of a child’s headache pain, and offers advice on symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and how to deal with doctors.

In a clear, lively, easy-to-understand style, Dr. Cheyette answers parents’ most pressing questions:

  • What are the possible causes of my child’s headache?
  • What medications and nondrugtherapies are available for my child’s pain?
  • How can I prepare my child for a doctor’s visit?
  • What questions should my doctor ask to ensure an accurate diagnosis of my child’s headache?
