Epilepsy is a neurological condition that occurs when a person has two or more seizures that are not attributable to another cause. There are many commonalities among those who have migraine and epilepsy including symptomatology, genetics and pathophysiology.

According to Liao et. al (2018), the risk of patients who have idiopathic epilepsy getting migraine with aura is roughly double. Accordingly, patients with migraine also increased the risk of getting epilepsy.1
