ā€œWhat causes teens to have headaches and attention loss?ā€

My 14-year-old daughter has periodic headaches and bloody noses. She also has issues with attention. I noticed that it's hard for her to focus on just one thing. What could be causing this?

Iā€™d recommend her to get her worked up for Iron/ Folate deficiencies as this could cause all these symptoms. Also any other medical underlying causes. Talk to her pediatrician.

Hope that helps

Your daughter's symptoms could be quite serious, I would take her to her pediatrician for an evaluation immediately.
