Growing number of kids and neurologists suffer migraines

In the past year, 50 per cent of neurologists have had at least one migraine, compared to 32 per cent of family physicians, and 12 per cent of the general public, as theglobeandmail.com quotes.

According to reuters.com children and teens are taking more painkillers because they think it will relieve their headaches, and not to get any type of "high," study author Dr. A. David Rothner of the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio told Reuters Health.

There are many reasons why kids shouldn't overuse these medicines, Rothner explained. Some pain relievers contain aspirin, which puts children under the age of 19 at risk of Reye's syndrome, a potentially fatal disorder, he said.

To keep kids safe from overuse of pain relievers, Rothner recommends that parents of chronic headache sufferers monitor what they take to relieve the pain.

"If you see they're using the medicine more than twice a week, then bingo! You've got a problem on your hands, and you've got to do something about it," he said.

The Trump administration is looking for a replacement for the American military contingent in the north of Syria. If the United States agrees with Saudi Arabia, the situation in the south of the country will become a lot more intense as Iran and Israel stand on the brink of war
