    1. Hey there, Kimberly! I’m so sorry to hear that your daughter is dealing with migraines at such a young age. Some of our kids have dealt with getting horrible headaches we thought were possibly migraines, but they don’t happen too often so it hasn’t been easy to figure out. Many of their severe headaches seem to be related to not drinking enough water so they’ve been working on that and it has helped a bit. My best to you and your daughter. Thanks.

  1. This is so interesting! I never knew there were so many triggers, I think for me mainly is being dehydrated, I feel so much better once I drink water. Thank you for sharing this!

  2. Very informative article. I used to have really bad migraines, and I found later that it was due to dehydration. I had only been drinking about 16 ounces of water a day.
