Answer

Psychiatric diseases associated with migraine can include depression, hypomania, panic attacks, anxiety disorders, or phobia.

Asthma, allergies, and seizure disorders are more common in childhood migraine patients. Preeclampsia, stroke, and hypertension are observed more commonly in adult migraine patients.

Migraine and epilepsy often occur in the same individual and may be related. Approximately 70% of patients with complex partial seizures have migraines. Most patients with migraines do not have seizures.
