How do I relieve a headache caused from having Chiari Type 1? My daughter is 14 yrs old and has for the past month been having bad headaches for the past month to 2 months. normally on the back of the head. She is still able to function and go to school. We have an appt to see a neorosurgeon, but it ain't until a month from now. She already had an MRI and the pediatrician is the one who told us she may have Chiari Type 1.

Can she take Motrin ibuprofen? I have given her 1 200mg but she says it doesn't help. Should I increase it to 2 tablets?
