In brief: Can cause stroke
Migraines with aura significantly increase risk of stroke.
See your neurologist.

In brief: Migraines
Acute, severe migraine (cerebral vasospasm) can cause an acute stroke, but fortunately this is rare.
I am not aware of any way that you could prove that a stroke that happened years later was due to a migraine. This seems very doubtful, but not impossible.

No statistical relationship between vasospastic migraine and subsequent CVA (secondary to bleed/clot)
