Does Flu Trigger Seizures
#1
According to NHS choices, patients with chronic neurological conditions, such as Parkinson's disease, motor neurone disease or multiple sclerosis (MS) are offered a vaccination. Why isn't epilepsy listed? Epilepsy is a chronic neurological conditional. In fact, according to the World Health Organisation, it's one of most common globally. Yet we're constantly forgotten, and stigimatised.

On the Epilepsy Action website, it clearly states that having an illness which causes a febrile condition / high temperature (flu) is a trigger for seizures, which I also confirmed with my epilepsy nurse specialist.

I don't think so.

Epilepsy has many causes: the brain's failure to develop normally, either in utero or in early life; a brain tumour, as is the case for Aidan; or a lack of oxygen, perhaps during a difficult birth. "In such cases it can be very challenging to know when to operate because if the problem is in the brain's left hemisphere, where language is, then you might lose language altogether," he explains.

The brain can only develop normally, if the child is getting the appropriate nutrients.

It's basic common sense!

Odd that epilepsy isn't listed. It is more common than people think. Cerebral palsy too. If I get a fever that spikes, I'll have a seizure.

Thank you for sharing, a high fever is different to the flu though isn't it, I met a child with a very high fever, and I was able to reduce the fever and his temperature with the healing energy, hands on. The child with the high fever, didn't have the flu.

Were children diagnosed correctly, there has been a court case in England.
