Migraines & Heredity Poll

We know that migraines tend to run in families. In my case, people on both sides of my family have a history of migraines. On my dad’s side, my dad, his mother, his sister and a few of his nieces and nephews (my cousins) all have them. On my mom’s side, her dad had them.

Knowing all this has made me curious about the genetic predispositions of my readers toward migraines. Please feel free to share more specific details about your family migraine history in the comments.
