Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum

I am sorry that your wife is affected with epilepsy and I hope she has no more seizures.

Chronic and recurring headaches may or may not be related to her neurological conditions. I am sure a brain scan was performed during the events in the past. If the scans are normal, then it is unlikely to be related to the seizure.

There are other causes such as migraine, sinusitis, tension headaches, rebound headaches, refractory errors, etc., which can give rise to constant and recurring headaches. I wonder what your wife has is one among these.

All the aforementioned conditions are easily treatable with medications and life style changes. I encourage you to consult her neurologist. Detailed evaluation can help us narrow down to a single possibility. We can take up the treatment from there.

Good luck!!!
