A recently published article in the journal Cephalagia found that children, who suffer from migraines and tension headaches, are much more likely to experience social issues, attention issues, depression and anxiety than children who do not.
The researchers examined the connection between migraines and tension type headaches and behavioral/emotional issues in almost 1,900 children between the ages of 5-11.
The results indicated that as the number of migraines a child experienced increased, the severity of the emotional issues increased. The children with the tension type headaches also showed similar issues, but they were not as severe.
Other published research supports these findings. Since the severity of the behavioral/emotional issues increased with the number of migraines experienced, it is logical that for children experiencing frequent migraines, parents and physicians should seek low side effect options to prevent and/or decrease as many migraines as possible.
Fortunately there is a proven effective alternative to children suffering a lifetime of migraine pain and abortive – pain relieving medications.
