Definition

Criteria suggested for abdominal Migraine include the following: a family history of Migraine; a history of Migraine with or without aura in the patient; recurrent identical attacks of abdominal pain; no abdominal symptoms between attacks; onset of attacks of abdominal pain in early childhood or early adult life (before the age of 40), mainly in females; episodes lasting from 1 to several hours; and pain usually located in the upper abdomen; The episodes may be associated with nausea and vomiting and pallor or flushing; The prevalence peaks at ages 5 to 9 years; The symptoms are of recurrent episodes of midline abdominal pain with attacks lasting 1-72 hours and complete normality between episodes; The pain is of moderate to severe intensity and is felt in the midline of the abdomen, usually around the umbilicus, or poorly localized; The attacks of pain are usually accompanied by anorexia and nausea and about half of the patients will vomit with at least some attacks; Marked pallor is commonly noted during the attacks although some patients may appear flushed; The pain is severe enough to interfere with normal daily activities and many children describe their mood during the attack as one of intense misery; The attacks are self limiting and resolve spontaneously; Occasionally there may be EEG findings suggestive of epilepsy but this is rarely related to seizures; Medications that are useful for treating migraine work to control these attacks in most children; Synonyms: Abdominal Migraine; Childhood Cyclic Vomiting; Chronic Vomiting in Childhood; Periodic Syndrome; Recurrent Vomiting ; Cyclic vomiting syndrome is a rare variant that affects children and adults; This disorder is characterized by chronic nausea, vomiting, extreme fatigue, motion sickness, abdominal pain and, in some cases, dizziness (vertigo) that may last for hours to days; These episodes of symptoms seem to be similar in onset and duration for each affected individual;
