Can We Have Seizures From Being Over Thinkers?

Can We Have Seizures From Being Over Thinkers?

I Was Told By A Neighbor Who Also Have Seizures And She Told Me That Even Though Im A Good Writer That I Should Stop The Over Thinking And Also Caring Too Much. Has Anyone Ever Been Told That?

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member this is my thing... i think, over thinking is an broad term. thinking can be anything (including all emotional, from the brain to motor functions and back for the 1st time, and speech in general). over thinking is just thinking in overdrive.
my option is, there is the brain, then thinking and repeated motion, then feeling and emotions and movement, and so on.
that is what i am saying... overthinking epilepsy kinds is to huge because it could be anything.
but yet again, this is my thoughts.

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member @A MyEpilepsyTeam Member ... our brains process a thousand of things in less than a sec... if that is not overthinking, i don't know what is. i think it is the stress or worrying about something then anything. but that is my option.

Randy says it best- any high emotion can cause a seizure. My frequent partials are just routine so don't cause stress or depression. To worry bout stress seems to cause more stress.

it's may happen but... epilepsy causes/kinds is a huge idem. a seizure is cause by (this is a guess here) 40-50 causes/kinds. and stress thinking is one of um. having said that (once again) there are 39-49 other causes/kinds besides stress.
question... do you think (or overthink) a lot? the answer is yes... our brain overthinks every single second. if you get stress out about an overthinking thing(s)... another question... when you stress thinking, do you have a seizure every single time? if yes, get a eeg and run a stress test with your dr. if no, then forget about it.
