Never before have so many young people in Norway taken migraine medicine. In the age group 15-19 years old, the increase was 66 percent from 2006 to 2016.
“In the past, sleep, sugar, hunger and stress were triggering migraines.
Today, an addition of two more are: body and screen. We have a stressed generation that is sleeping irregularly, eating too rarely and often unhealthy. The stress takes place in the body. All of these are triggers for migraines, says Drotting-Røne.
