Summary:

Migraine and epilepsy are diseases characterized by paroxysmal occurring clinical manifestations that have different mechanisms of pathogenesis. In the interictal period in 59% of patients with epilepsy there are different types of primary headache: 18%, migraine without aura, 33% from tension-type headache, and 8% not classified headache. We have analyzed clinical and electrophysiological pattern in patients with migraine and idiopathic generalized epilepsy. A preliminary analysis of the clinical picture of headaches in adult patients suffering from idiopathic generalized epilepsy suggests that migraine occurs more often in patients with idiopathic generalized epilepsy, whereas among patients with focal symptomatic epilepsy is more common patients with secondary headache
