It has been said to me that hitting my head, by falling down or something like that, is a lot more dangerous for me as an epileptic. It has also heen suggested that the epilepsy may get worse, or that seizures in the week after hitting my head may not be due to the normal course of the disorder but due to having hit my head. What kind of clarity can be offered?
Epilepsy - How much more dangerous are blows to the head for epileptics than non-epileptics?

I think both are equally dangerous. However, a bad blow to the head of someone without epilepsy may cause epilepsy. I have severely hit my head many times by falling from a seizure and I have no more than the usual amount of seizures after the fall and hitting my head. I hope this helps!
