Are individuals with migraine headaches more inclined to migraine headaches at altitude ?

Perhaps. Some people report an increased frequency, others greater severity with symptoms not seen lower down. Treat them as any other headache at altitude, checking for ataxia, rapid breathing, and so on. Don’t ascend, and try pain medicine if there are no ominous findings.
