Why do we get migraines?


I wonder whether we are all prone to migraines
as many medical conditions will present with migraine-like headaches. For example, if someone
suffers a seizure, it is very typical to get a migraine as a headache after the attack.
However, people who suffer migraines without epilepsy have an underlying genetic predisposition.
As often people will know that their family members, parents, often grandparents or more
distant relatives suffered from migraines themselves. Migraines can also be caused by
medical conditions. A common vasculitic condition is systemic lupus which is often associated
with migraines. People are also more prone to migraines if they have an irregular lifestyle
or they are stressed or they overuse regular pain killers to control an initially innocent
headache.
