You have been getting migraine due to increased secretion of Neurotransmitter "serotonin" in certain areas of brain due to any cause. the triad of migraine being (1)Positive Family History(2)Onset with a Prodrome and impending attack preceded by an Aura(3)Vomitting relieving the symptoms.
The cause of Migraine has to be completely worked up by a Neurologist with special investigations such as CT/MRI of brain to rule out lesions such as SOL/Aneurysms/AVMs.
