If you have frequent migraine, then your genes might be the reason.
A migraine is a severe, long-lasting headache usually felt as a throbbing pain at the front or on one side of the head.
According to a study published in the Journal of Nature Medicine, migraine might be caused by a genetic defect. The researchers led by Dr Zameel Cader of the University of Oxford, identified a gene known as TRESK that directly attributable as a cause of migraine in some patients.
The study found that if the TRESK gene doesn’t work properly, then environmental factors might easily trigger pain centers in the brain and cause a severe headache.
The researchers now are looking into developing a drug that activate that gene. If course, this might take a while before something actually happen, but the good news is that the hunt for the gene that causes migraine hopefully over.
