If any physician, healthcare provider, or mental health professional uses the term migraine in the plural, as in by adding an “s”, when talking with you about migraine, you can be sure that he or she is either not paying attention or is not well-educated on migraine. Migraine is a neurological disease, like epilepsy, and when it’s discussed with a patient or client by someone who is familiar with it, it’s discussed in the context of the number of days per month, whereas epilepsy has a separate term called “seizures” that can be used in plurals and it is normal to ask how many “seizures” a person has had in the last month, week, or even day depending on the frequency. You would likely look at your doctor with confusion if he or she were to ask you about the number of epilepsies you’ve had in the last month, as an example. It’s equally important that a professional doesn’t call migraine, migraines, and that if he or she would like to use it in the plural context that he or she call it what it is, a migraine attack or migraine attacks.
 It’s important to note that you are relying upon people who are ‘interpreting’ the results of these EEGs and VEEGs. In many cases, these individuals are highly trained and interpret these results accurately. However, I am familiar with how medical records are not always documented accurately, for a variety of reasons and this is not always done with bad intentions.
