With a good history and physical examination, and with the aid of tests like electroencephalogram and mri, your physician will be able to establish a diagnosis and correct treatment. I suggests a neurological evaluation as well. This could all be related to your seizure disorder. Migraines can co-exist in seizure disorders as well.
