CHICAGO - At least one child in 10 suffers chronic headaches that stunt their emotional lives and hurt school performance as much as illnesses such as cancer, researchers said.

A study of 572 headache sufferers ages 2 to 18 at the Cincinnati Children's Headache Center concluded the unpredictable attacks diminished quality of life as much as much more serious diseases. Researcher Scott Powers wrote in Pediatrics journal: "Recurrent headaches have an impact on a child's life in a number of ways, including school absences and reduction in performance, decreased home and family interactions and decreased socialization with peers."
