The risk factors for migraine are typically: being of childbearing years, being female, obviously (since 75% of the people that have migraines are women), genetics - if you have two parents that have migraines, you have a 60% chance of getting migraines. If you have one parent, I think it goes down to about 40%. But again, it may or may not actually occur - something has to turn it on. If you have some sort of trauma, neck or head injury, the risks increase. Although that's not necessarily 100% - it kind of depends. Decreased sleep can sometimes turn on migraines as well. Lifestyle habits, such as not drinking or eating consistently.
