Objectives: Epilepsy and headache are common paroxysmal neurological disorders. Headache can occasionally be the sole symptom of a seizure. In addition, postictal headaches frequently occur after complex partial and generalized tonic-clonic seizures. The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of interictal headache in patients with epilepsy presenting at an outpatient epilepsy clinic.
