Is it a headache, an aura, a migraine, a seizure, or perhaps ALL four! | May 11, 2022

If you’ve had a migraine with auras that triggered an epileptic seizure, you might have experienced migraine-induced epilepsy.

Another name for this phenomenon is migralepsy.

Scientists have debated the existence and terminology of this phenomenon for some time.

Currently, the International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICHD-3) acknowledges it as “migraine aura-triggered seizure.”

However, epilepsy authorities do not acknowledge the condition.

For the controversy and its explanation, see the following article. It’s a must! https://epilepsyu.com/what-is-migralepsy/

    • Leonard, you just made my day. No, you just made my week!

      Thank you. Sometimes writing in obscurity is difficult. You don’t know whether it’s good, bad or relevant.

      But when I hear what you just said, the reasons come flooding back to me.
