The department of pediatrics at a hospital in France recently published results from a study of children and adolescents looking at the prevalence, and type of migraine triggers. In 100% of the patients studied, at least one migraine trigger was reported by the patient and/or was the parents’ interpretation.
The most common trigger noted was stress, reported by more than 75% of the patients. Lack of sleep followed with 69%, and warm climate posted at 68% of the patients studied.  Playing video games ranked 4th in most common migraine triggers, with nearly 64% of the patients reporting it triggered a migraine.

While playing video games may not be a common trigger for adults, stress and lack of sleep are frequent triggers for children, adolescents and adults….. The Journal of Headache and Pain   2011
