Family History

Welcome to the Migraine Cause and Family History Forum

  1. I have a strong family history of Familial Hemiplegic Migraine. My daughter and two of my nieces have experienced them once or twice, but I have them much more often - 2 a month on the average. I have many more relatives who have migraine with aura and I experience these as well from time to time. Both of my parents have migraine with aura, I suppose that's why I am so susceptible besides the fact that I have asthma which is linked to migraine.

    1. cindybear, often patients who suffer both asthma and Migraine react well when supplemented with magnesium. Have you tried this for a few months yet?

      1. C A D A S I L an autosomal DOMINANT genetic disorder that causes cognitive vascular impairment a burden of illness similar to that caused by and often misdiagnosed as Alzheimer's disease. Some early symptoms of CADASIL can be numbness, MIGRAINE headaches , mood disorders and TIA's. CADASIL is often misdiagnosed as MS. If you suffer from any of these symptoms or there is a family history of stroke, Alzheimer's or MS ask your doctor about CADASIL.
