Personality Changes In Spouse After He Began Having Seizures

Personality Changes In Spouse After He Began Having Seizures

My husband suddenly started having grand mal seizures about 6 years ago completely out of the blue and was diagnosed with epilepsy about 6 months after his first cluster of seizures. He was young (27) fit and healthy and strong as he is a farmer, since the epilepsy began he has changed in almost every way... can anyone else relate?

Has Anyone Had Issues With Back Pain?

My 18 year old son has been having lower back pain. This morning he had a seizure and once he came out of it he was in extreme pain in his lower back. I’m sure the convulsions caused his muscles to stiffen up or twist. I’m not sure if this lower back pain is common in people with epilepsy or if it was caused by something else.
