I ask because this is exactly what my neurologist told me today and explained. If you get overheated, then blood pressure rises and the symptom is feeling faint/light headed. When blood pressure gets too high, then a seizure can be triggered.
I do not care that he explains that heat and humidity do NOT directly trigger a seizure, because all that is significant to me that the seizure still happens. I have more seizures during the summer than the three other seasons combined. And climate… read more
No. He/she is full of sheet.
I try to keep my windows open in the summer. We are in the mountains. Clean air. When the house gets above 77, I have to turn in the AC. Both me and my kiddo get headaches. Outside, above 88, I gotta get inside. I get hot in my head and for some reason I'm not sweating.
What about driving behind tail lights @ night , my vision gets crossed went to the eye doctor they said my vision was ok,
I have to when it's hot and humid, but wasn't like it is now until I started having sleep apnea.
The high heat and humid weather
It can make it more difficult for me to breathe which can bring on a seizure.
If the humidity is down and in the low low 80's or below. I can bare it for a longer time period, does help also if there is shade.
Stay under the shade. The humidity can be awful.always have a drink with me!
Personally some of my seizures aren't directly from weather but what comes with it. Dehydration and a lot of used up electrolytes is what my triggers are. Gotta make sure I keep up with my hydration and sodium levels. Lower sodium= lower threshold. We gotta makes sure to keep hydration up. Dehydration can drive the brain wacky. Easiest way to know. Check your pee. Darker pee drink more water til it's clear or a light yellow. My 2 worst hour long seizures came from dehydration. Dont care what doc says. My pee was dark yellow, even the nurse was like damn that's dark. Couple night stay and an I.V. of water and potassium for me.
