Does Anyone Feel That High Emotion-not Just Stress-can Contribute To The Cause Of Seizures?

Does Anyone Feel That High Emotion-not Just Stress-can Contribute To The Cause Of Seizures?

Many of my seizures occur when I'm quite happy and excited like when going to am
an expected party/event. For an epileptic brain that's already racing then is even more
so by high emotion/excitement this seems normal. Stress is a factor as well of course
but I'd like to know if anyone has had the same experience just from excitement.

Hi. I believe high strong emotions can hit you with a seizure. Atleast it does to me. I got way upset over a nightmare from a hallucinations. and for me my emotions overpowered me and a seizure hit me.
