My Daily Struggle for 36 Years

Hello, I am 36 years old and I live with chronic headaches/migraine. My mother, grandmother and great grandmother all suffered from them as well. I have tried so many different treatment options with very little luck. In 2007 I was diagnosed with (ALL) Leukemia and was hospitalized for 2 years and released after a bone marrow transplant. I suffered from migraines before my diagnoses but it got much worse after. During my hospitalization, I had numerous health problems associated with Leukemia like congestive heart failure, kidney failure, blindness, and seizures.

My question is, is there any research linking this to migraines?

    I am 61 years old, and have been having migraines since I was 18 years old, and my mother had them, both my daughters have them and a few of my nieces have them, I think in my case it is inhareted, I have tried lots of medications, and for now I am on pain medication, and hoping to the new Medication Aimovig, when I see my neurologist.
