I really don’t understand the “migraine in the stomach” either, part but I can tell you this - he gets bad stomach cramps, sometimes with vomiting but never gets a real headache. And after the episode, he is super tired and worn out - just like with a “real” migraine.

I get minor migraines (usually from dehydration) that come with an early warning - I get rainbow prisms in my vision. When that happens, I take a couple Advil and I can usually stave off a major issue. I couldn’t imagine going through what you describe.

Interesting fact, you can actually have a migraine in your stomach. My son has had stomach issues we’ve been trying to address with his doctor and this is one of the things we tried to control with a certain medication.
