Sooner is better: If this is the first seizure, that is probably not soon enough. How much of a work-up has been done? If this is the first seizure, you would want an MRI scan to make certain that this is not from a brain tumor or a bleed. Also are you on anti-seizure medications and is that medication and dosing being monitored to make certain there aren't adverse reactions?

No: If you continue to have migraine headaches you should seek an earlier appointment or go to the emergency room.
