I wonder about that also. I find it very coincidental that there are some neurovascular conditions in my family history.My grandfather died from a stroke(not very old) My Grandmother(not sure of the age) and Father(at 52 yrs old) died from Circle of Willis aneurisms(which are considered hereditary) that ruptured.My sister had an MRI and was diagnosed with the same and succesfully operated on to correct hers.There is a great history of migrains also.My Grandmother had what they called back then "spells" where she had migrains and dizziness.It is very coincidental because from what I've read, in adults MM can actually cause aneurisms or bleeds in the Circle of Willis part of the brain. I haven't gone much further in family research but maybe I should try.Wouldlove to hear any other ideas on this topic.I have 2 other children, and 6 brothers and sisters.
