Grandson has been suffering migraines and two episodes of hives, breathing difficulties which resulted in a trip to ER. Various doctors and specialists have been consulted, no diagnosis. No known allergies, but carries an Epi pen. He is twelve years old, not physically active and a good student. Due to the migraines, he has missed about a day of school per week. I recently learned he takes his iPad to bed, plays his games, and sets his alarm for 4:00 to play more games until he has to go to school. I am sure his game playing time is unmonitored. I also know his diet, i.e. diet sodas, is unmonitored. He drinks several cans per day. Can you help? Is it possible diet and sleep deprivation may be the problem and results in migraines and hives?
