Yes . Getting angry makes us stressed . Too much stress can trigger seizures.

Depending on how high stress level you can tolerate, will depend on, if your seizure gets triggered or not.

Yes! When Iā€™m extremely angry, it causes me a lot of stress and then I have my trigger. Which is emotional stress all together. What I try to do is remain calm in many situations, and try to keep my stress levels as calm as possible because I know what the end result will be.

Yes it did. I'm the father of three boys who tested my anger quite often and were very quiet if they heard I had a seizure because they knew they were the trigger.
