Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

It is possible that his migraine headaches have got triggered by his concussion, so, I agree with your neurologist.

Since your grandson has frequent attacks of migraine, it is better to start him on preventive migraine therapy with medications such as beta blockers or divalproex.
