Is my 3 year old son is having migraine?

my 3 year old son has been experiencing off and on headaches, stomach pains and some vomiting. He is sleeping a lot as well. This has been going on for almost 3 weeks. He has been to see my family doctor and we are currently waiting for lab results. Could this be migraines? or something more?

Hi,
Thank you for asking question on health care magic
Migraine patients will usually have familly h/o migraine.
Females are more prone to it and is often associated with vomiting.
Treat with analgesics like Ibuprofen.
3 weeks is very short period to diagnose migraine.
