What is abdominal migraine?

Abdominal migraine is characterized by pain that occurs in the belly, near the navel or midline. Typically, this occurs in children who have a family history of migraines and go on to develop typical migraine later in life. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, pallor, and anorexia.
