Migraines and Epilepsy

Posted on March 05, 2018

Experiencing migraines may occur before seizures. If you have a seizure disorder, you are twice as likely to have migraine headaches. Discussing migraine pain is best done alongside others on MyEpliepsyTeam who understand what you are going through.

On MyEpilepsyTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with epilepsy, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Migraines are one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about migraines:

Do any of you have a family history of migraines?

Has anyone tried anything that seems to work on your migraines?

Does anyone else experience migraines along with trying to deal with epilepsy?

Here are some conversations about migraines:

Feel free to ask a question here.
