Kids who suffer from chronic migraine headaches are more likely to struggle academically according to a new study.

Brazilian researchers studied 5600 children between the ages of 5 and 12. Nearly one in five of the kids experienced regular migraine symptoms.

Researchers say the children with migraines were 30 percent more likely to show below average performance in school than those without headaches.

Researchers say their findings, which are published in the journal Neurology, are a reminder to parents to take kid's headache symptoms seriously.
