Seizures and Weather

Has anyone experienced break out seizures due to unstable weather lately?!?? Like out of no where… just boom; seizure. But the weather has been so upside down and outta control. Am I the only one?

  1. I have always had more seizures when the weather was going to change. I have been like that since I was a baby . As, I got older the stronger my seizures got and that even includes, when the weather is changing: from snow to rain or cold and windy to hot humid. Afterwards, when the weather has calmed down,. My seizures also calm down and I can have a break. Because, when my seizures go up, they go from 2 to4 a day, to 6 to 8 a day, because of the change. I get very frustrated with having so many seizures. Even though, I know why. Been going on all my life and I still get frustrated. After 60 years. You would think that I would be able to just deal with it At times, I get SO FRUSTRATED. Would like to talk to anyone else that has gone through this.

      1. Yes. In the past, strong fast moving low pressure systems have regularly triggered seizures in my wife. My Accuweather app says that 29.88 inches of Hg is a common pressure below which she has had seizures.

        1. I recently had a very bad seizure. I was doing so well and it had been so long that I didn’t have a big one (grand maul). I was just helping my mom and baking cookies then BOOM I woke up with a fat lip on the couch and my mom crying over me. I don’t know if it’s the weather, the month, the day or what…but it came out of nowhere and they just suck. I don’t care how long I’ve been epileptic I’ll never get use to having seizures.
