Abdominal migraine

Abdominal migraine is a disease characterized by diffuse paroxysmal pain in the abdomen, combined with clonic convulsions of the muscles of the anterior abdominal wall.

Abdominal pain with abdominal migraine is most common in toddlers and young adults, but is not often detected in adults.


The pain is intense, diffuse in nature, but sometimes it can be localized in the navel, accompanied by nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, blanching and cold extremities. Vegetative concomitant manifestations can vary from mild, moderately pronounced to bright vegetative crises. The duration of pain ranges from half an hour to several hours or even several days. All kinds of combinations with migraine cephalgia are possible: the simultaneous appearance of abdominal and cephalgic pain, their alternation, the dominance of one of the forms with their simultaneous presence.


When diagnosing, the following factors will need to be taken into account: the relationship of abdominal pain with migraine headache, provoking and accompanying factors characteristic of migraine, young age, family history, therapeutic effect of anti-migraine products, an increase in the velocity of linear blood flow in the abdominal aorta during dopplerography (especially during paroxysm ).
