Circadian And Circannual Impacts On Epilepsy:

Does anyone else have stronger seizures around the equinoxes? Most of my grand mals have occurred in or near October or April? I have noticed that I've been having stronger and more frequent petit mals lately. I was just reading an article about those who are on Depakote, Divalproex and other Valproates and seasonal changes in their seizures. 🤔

There is an old statement "Never sleep with your head pointing North", this comes from the concept of magnetic pull and how it affects the body.

Storms and atmospheric pressures can also cause "pressure headaches."

Your question makes sense and seems dependent on a series of variables that are in your personal life but maybe not the lives of others. It may be more of an "equation of variables" that gives you this verse an "equal situation each time due to one variable alone".

Your situation is however valid when you're the living proof.

I hope you can fight thru it and stay strong <3

The old time beliefs in Astrology, moon or planets affecting us is not reality. Think heart attacks occur due to this? Epilepsy is just as physical a problem that we may have. Speculate or wonder but don't let it determine or undermine your treatment please.
