This is rarely seen in post-pubertal adolescents or adults. Sometimes, a child who experiences episodes in pre-pubertal years may also have episodes after puberty and adolescence.
Confusional Migraines usually have a period of disorientation, sometimes associated with agitation, headache nausea and then vomiting. Although, they may not bring constant headache. Diagnosis can be difficult as the confusional state following the head trauma can lead a headache specialist into undertaking more extensive diagnosis or even hospital admission without considering the possibility of a Confusional Migraine attack.
This type of migraine is characterized by short-lived episodes of amnesia (memory loss), confusion, agitation, lethargy, and dysphasia (speech difficulties) brought about by minor head trauma. Some children also experience recurrent episodes of temporary amnesia and confusion.
