3 doctors agree

In brief: Seizure or migraine

Probably the greatest similarity between migraine symptoms and seizure symptoms is the "positive visual symptoms" that some people with migraines get.
These feel like shiny lights, dots, waves or other visual distortions prior to the headache. Sometimes these are similar to occipital epileptic seizures.

You ought to be evaluated by a reputable neurologist and give him/her a detailed history.

In brief: Not real ones

Tga -transient global amnesia - episode of confusional state without ante grade memory - is thought to be a migraine related event.
Used to be thought of as possible seizure. If you had a " real" convulsive seizure, that would not be from your migraine. Pls see a neurologist.
