Migraine FAQ - Q4

Q: Does playing computer games cause migraine? My mum makes me stop playing on my computer at half past six but she lets my sister play on it until she goes to bed.

A: For some children watching television or playing computer games for a long time can cause a migraine attack. Ideally you shouldn't do this for more than 3 hours a day or spend longer than 45 minutes on your computer at any one time (or on video games or watching television) without a break. Your mum has probably noticed that you can get a migraine after spending too long on your computer and is trying to help you have less attacks. You need to stop at least an hour before you go to bed so you have time to relax.
