The factors that influence Migraine on a constant basis are often termed as “Triggers”. The sufferer has to avoid such triggers to prevent from constant headaches.
Genetic factorStudies have shown that hereditary factors play a vital role in causing Migraine. A person may have a greater chance of being affected by Migraine if both of his parents are Migraineurs. A Research done by the Department of Neurology, Glostrup Hospital, University of Copenhagen (Denmark), lists out the key findings as:
a) First degree relatives of the Migraineur have a great chance of being affected by Migraine.
b) Two types of Migraine: Migraine with Aura (visual disturbance) and Migraine without Aura
c) Migraine without Aura is influenced by both the genetic factors as well as environmental factors
d) Migraine with Aura is highly influenced by genetic factors.
