Can migraines cause seizures or vice versa?

How are you? Migraine and seizures are very different conditions but may have  the same triggers. While both disorders involve electrical changes within the brain, diagnosis are not the same. Seizure disorders are often caused by the infection, brain tumor and other organic causes while migraine have no specific cause. People with migraine have an increased incidence of seizure disorders or epilepsy and vice versa. Also, symptoms of particular types of seizure may be the same also as symptoms during a migraine aura.  Hope this helps. Take care and best regards.
