Children's Health

Is this normal?

04/07/2009

Question:

Over the last couple of months my younger brother has been having migraines, as well as severe nosebleeds, he has now also started vomiting.

He is in his midteens and is enjoying school, life in general and eating pretty healthy, so I`m starting to get worried as to what`s causing this. He also hasn`t been under any major stress.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:

Thank you for visiting NetWellness. I can understand your concern, and he is lucky to have such a good sister. However, only a health professional performing a thorough clinical exam is able to evaluate your brother's symptoms.
