Hello mrsconner0810. Some of the reasons people that are not epileptic have a seizure might be because of a past or present head injury, drugs (medications) they are taking, possibility of a illness or disease. I hope that you are seizure free and will continue to be so. Regards, pledge

They said it was due to lack of sleep or stress. I dont do drugs or have i ever had a brain injury. Lol. Im ADHD and take medication for it but they have already ruled that out.

I understand and yes, stress certainly has been known can bring on a seizure. Thanks for the update.

Hi there, I certainly agree with pledge & also what they told you about stress & sleep... it's all true!! I have a seizure disorder & just have one thing to add... mine would seem to occur everytime a moment of extreme anger or extreme panic was added to my stressful, overtired body and/or mind! I have ADHD too & I have had a concussion OT two in my day. My seizures today are under control with meds. Hope this helps you recognize the circumstances that may surround any future seizure so that you can avoid them if at all possible! (-:

As Pledge mentioned there are numerous causes for seizures - sometimes the cause is not found. In addition to what Pledge told you, high fevers - especially in children- over medication, flashing lights like strobe lights,or as in the case of some adults, mixing alcohol or taking ilegal drugs can also cause a seizure. One is usually not diagonised as an epileptic unless seizures continue beyond one or two isolated events. May you never have another one. Epiplepsy is a tough road for the individual and family.

They do help me but I avnt a clue how these seizures happen.I did attend a clinic for N.E.A.D neuro dept but no ones explained to me why and how these happen.hope uve improved and feel free 2 ask me Q&A .
