After I started getting my migraines it started to come out that my father and my maternal grandmother both got migraines. I have chronic daily migraines, but they both just have occassional migraines. They both have different symptoms, but I share symptoms with both of them plus a few extras that they don't suffer from...I'm not sure if I just got the double whammy because I inherited the migraines from both sides of my family or if there are other factors involved.
I do know that every time I go to a new doctor for my migraines, one of the first questions they ask is if there's a history of migraines in the family.
I hope this helps,
