Is a Migraine related to Asthma

​For what feels like decades I have heard my niece complain about migraines. She has just turned thirty and has been asthmatic for as long as I can remember. Her headache are so intense it's difficult to even watch at times.

I have heard that sometimes migraines are closely related to asthma. How accurate is this? Can anyone shed some light?

RE: Is a Migraine related to Asthma

Asthma and migraine are what is called “comorbid”. Thatmeans that individuals with each disorder has a higher than expected chance ofhaving the other. However, it does not mean that one causes the other.Thereason for this is that migraine is caused by or influenced by genes. Genes areinherited as neighborhoods. When we inherit features of one condition, iscommon to inherit genes that influence the second condition.

This is a scary thought for me to engage in. I've had frightening coughing fits a few months ago. These coughs were so bad that I felt a tightness in my chest and I couldn't breathe for a few seconds. I know asthma is something that runs in my family but I have been relatively healthy my whole life. I don't eat bad and I exercise regularly. However, I haven't been bless not to deal with migraines. This began when I was around 12. It was on and off throughout my teen years and by during my late 20s, it became worse. Now, at 31, I have to take Excedrin for Migraine at least 2 - 3 times per week. I don't know if they are closely related but I do find it weird how in my coughing fits a few months ago, migraines were usually the preceding symptom before I would have such a reaction.

They are comorbid conditions. So one does not cause the other but they do co-occur. I have had migraines since my early 20's and then all of a sudden in my early 30's developed asthma. I also developed a problem with triptans. I get asthma like side effects to the triptans that apparently are rare side effects. Troubles breathing, heavy feeling in the chest and wheezing. Also heart related abnormalities. I have no idea if it is due to the asthma or just a drug sensitivity. However, I do know the two conditions are comorbid so it is not uncommon for people to have both.
