Can tinnitus trigger migraine headaches?

Probably not. While migraines can be triggered by many things, usually tinnitus alone is not likely to do this. If you are having periods of tinnitus related to loud sound exposure, the sound exposure is a more likely culprit. If you have constant tinnitus, then likely the migraines have some other cause.
