Why Teenagers Suffer From Migranes?

Feb 20, 2008
People develop migraines in their teens or later. Why does this happen?

Many health researchers will tell you this is caused by hormonal development that increases your chances of triggering a migraine. That may be partly true but there is another reason, and it is the main reason why migraines develop in young people. If we played our hands right, we could mostly avoid this.

So, why do migraine catches one in their early teens?

As stated in my earlier articles on migraines, I have mentioned that the main cause for migraines is oxygen deprivation to the brain.

The basic reasons for the cause of this deprivation are:

1) We quantity of oxygen we inhale is low because our breathing passages are not open enough and the muscles that control the lungs are not effective enough.

b} The percentage of oxygen that reaches the lungs which actually goes into the blood stream is very low. The main reason is because of bad breathing habits that is caused by ineffective muscle control in the lungs.

c} Tension is created in the neck muscles and the blood stream through the neck is constricted. Instead of helping the heart to pump blood up to the head they blocks it.

4) The muscles tensions around the head. But these muscles which were supposed to be flexible and help the heart pump the blood to various areas of the brain are often stiff and do the opposite.

So, why do teenagers develop migraines?

Think about it: Up until age five or six, kids run around playing all day. They hardly sit down to eat dinner. And given the choice they'll sit down on the floor with their plate. This is the position nature wanted for us.

During their school days they spent hours sitting on uncomfortable chairs and leaning over school books. As they grow older, they sit more in school, in front of the TV and computer, talking to friends, eating supper etc. There is less running, jumping, rolling and crawling and more sitting.

Our back was not meant for all this sitting. Some muscles become weak due to little use while others take over their task. The muscles that were meant to control our lungs are now used to balance our body. The neck and shoulders get stiff and blood doesn't flow through like it used to.

In "less developed" countries where people do not sit on chairs, migraines are much less common and sometimes almost non-existent.

Worries and anxiety grips us as we grow older. The teenage stage is the toughest state in many people life.

Teenagers unconsciously develop the habit of freezing and they stop breathing for several seconds when faced with tough decisions. This habit often follows them throughout their life and can cause repeated migraine and headache attacks.
