By  | 

TOLEDO (WTVG) - Are you trying to get back into the routine at your house?

So many of us are.

New curfews, different bedtimes, dinner at all different times! It's stressful, right?

During this back-to-school season, doctors say patients report more headaches on Mondays or at the start of the school year than at other times. And they say stress certainly plays into that, which is why coping mechanisms can help.

We spent time with local pediatric neurologist, Dr. Michael Nagle, from ProMedica Children's Hospital, for more on this issue.

Researchers say migraine headaches can begin in early childhood, and that the average starting age is 7 years old for boys and 10 for girls.
