What Are Yours Triggers That Causes Your Seizures To Happen?

What Are Yours Triggers That Causes Your Seizures To Happen?

I can be doing so many simple, small things that i dont get how i manage to cause the seizure to happen.
For example, mostly for me the most simple one is i am just sitting or lying on my bed watching telly…suddenly i feel weird and have a seizure.

My triggers that makes it happen, that i try my heardest to avoid are
Stress
Heat
Sudden sickness, loss of my vision
Anxeity.

I hate my FUCKING epliespy life!

Alcohol.

Other triggers
Over excitement ( too much fun )
Regular soda/pop ( but can drink diet )
Holiday crowds ( Christmas, Thanksgiving & ect. )
Too much Blue screen ( today’s TV, computer, iPad or tablets, and video game consoles )
Then there are seizures that just come out of the blue

I "poisoned" my son 3 Thanksgivings in a row with stuffing before I figured out the spice sage was a dietary trigger. Also, Red Dye #2 has been a culprit, but inconsistently.

The new non alcoholic beers are fantastic, can’t tell the difference. Sam Adams has some great ones. I’ve heard there are some wines too. At a recent party some people drank my non alcoholic beer by accident and didn’t know it until I I asked who was drinking it. A step forward for us!

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member , on special occasions I may drink a small portion of alcohol. If I’m at bar or pub, drink Virgin beverages ( VIRGIN SEX on the BEACH ,is my favorite ).. I have no problem drinking Diet soda/pop . It has to say DIET , not Coke Zero or Pepsi One and all the other soda/pop flavors.

Saying what yours are, because of my stupid memory and struggle to remember because of thr epilespy. Your triggers are basically the same as mine. I am actally scared to drink alcohol bwcause of an seizure happening. I have occasational soda/pop drinks like a pepsi max. If i do too much in rhe day, it will cause one. So i dont make plans. Im not comfortable going out anyway too anxious unless i am with family.
