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:

  • How can I identify and treat pain in my baby? My toddler? My teen?
  • 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?
  • What are our options if we’ve already seen a doctor…and the headache still isn’t going away?

Filled with case studies drawn from her own practice, resources, diagrams, and a valuable sample headache diary, Mommy, My Head Hurts belongs on every parenting bookshelf.
