Definition

Symptoms; subacute headaches in children ; headaches worse, same spot, and better or worse changing position of head, standing, sitting, lying down; occipital headaches; those that waken patient from a deep sleep, occur at night or in the morning are worse; those associated with vomiting without nausea, or projectile vomiting; headaches worse staining at stool, with valsalva, or with lifting and with cough or sneeze; any headache associated with focal seizures; headaches that occur day after day in same area and worsening signal intracranial lesion but this is not always found at all on imaging; however all these scenarios should be worked up of with scans and LP
