Capital Health Institute's Study Shows Migraine Headaches Prevalent Among Teen Girls
Date:6/11/2013

Hopewell, NJ (PRWEB) June 11, 2013

Migraine headaches are surprisingly common among teenage girls, yet many have limited knowledge of the disorder and frequently misuse over-the-counter medications that can worsen their symptoms, a noted headache researcher says.

Dr. Mitra Assadi, director of the Headache Center at Capital Health’s Capital Institute for Neurosciences, is calling for health education messages aimed at teenage girls to include information about migraines, including signs, symptoms and potential treatments.

Another 45 percent had non-migraine headaches.

The teen girls in the study also had poor knowledge about the symptoms, triggers, treatments and auras associated with migraine.

For instance, just 57 percent of girls with definite migraine correctly identified their headaches as migraine, while only 28 percent of those with probable migraines considered themselves to have migraines. The research determined that the teenagers’ knowledge was “substantially” limited in regards to migraine auras and “moderately” limited in terms of symptoms, triggers and treatment.

The study also looked at the use of over-the-counter (OTC) medications, such as aspirin, acetaminophen, naproxen and ibuprophen. According to Dr. Assadi, inadequate medical care often leads to self-medication. Overall, 68 percent of the girls wit
