Episode Description

Lack of sleep. Increased stress. Medication side effects. Depression and anxiety. Fear of falling behind. You might not realize it, but if you or your children are living with ADHD, these issues could bring on or worsen headaches — and they might even worsen your ADHD. For some people, headaches might stem from undiagnosed ADHD. When headaches are frequent and debilitating, students miss school days and adults lose time at work, adding to stress.

Wait, you might say. There’s actually a connection between headaches and ADHD? Research says yes, and it might be worse for women. Help may be elusive, as physicians who treat migraine headaches might not be familiar with ADHD and the factors that can lead to or aggravate this condition. But this webinar with Dr. Sarah Cheyette is designed to expose those connections to improve your quality of care.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • The connection between migraine headaches and ADHD
  • The factors that may lead to or worsen headaches in people with and without ADHD, and in women in particular
  • Strategies to reduce or stop migraines
  • Resources to help you overcome the problems that lead to headaches
