IIH and HM: many times we don't have an answer for why IIH happens. Often we see IIH in women who have been using certain acne medications or who have gained weight rapidly, but the mechanism of this increased pressure is unknown. Hemiplegic migraines, on the other hand, are often due to a calcium channel mutation - there is a genetic tendency for this protein to let too much calcium in and cause migraine
