CAUSES

Exact cause of migraine is not known. It is supposed that changes occurred in genes and the brain is responsible for migraine. Migraine can be transferred from parents to their child also. In the past, doctors thought that migraine occurs because of fluctuations in blood flow level in the brain. But now, this fact is considered as a trigger for the migraine not as the cause.

Studies and research might think of migraine as a result of over-activation of nerve cells which further begin to send out signals that triggers trigeminal nerve (the nerve responsible for giving sensation to face and head). This condition forces the body to release chemicals like calcitonin gene related peptide (CGRP) and serotonin which cause swelling at lining of blood vessels present in the brain and cause pain and inflammation.
