Can Geological Events Impact Seizures?

Can Geological Events Impact Seizures?

I saw that there have been a series of earthquakes in the area over the past couple weeks. Mostly in the 2.0 - 3.0 range east of Cleveland and several occurring offshore in Lake Erie. But I had my first seizure in nearly six months last night. I wonder if one may have something to do with the other.

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member the moon effects affect our hormones. This can assist in seizures. The moon deals with both men and women's reproduction cycles. This is where testosterone, estrogen and progesterone come into play. If anyone of those is off. Here comes seizure to hang in ya corner and wishes to pump you up like a UFC fighter.

I wonder how an earthquake can affect the barometric pressure? A change in the barometric pressure does trigger migraines in some people.

I was curious and googled the connection between the barometric pressure and earthquakes.

Well I don't think so but anything is possible the reason why there is a increasing amount of earthquake is because of Yellowstone supper volcano its waking up and doing so it's creating earthquake across the U.S
