Is Migraine Disorder Hereditary?
The fact that almost all migraine sufferers have a family history of migraines strongly suggests that they have a genetic predisposition. for developing the disorder. Researchers haven’t yet figured out exactly which genes may increase the risk of developing migraines, but some genes seem to be linked to migraines with auras, while others are linked to migraines without auras. While these genes don’t cause migraines directly, they may cause differences in brain structure or function that increase the risk of developing migraines.
Overall, you have a 50-75% chance of developing migraines at some point if one or both of your parents have experienced migraines in the past.
