    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I donot think that anyone on here knows that answer but I am not sure.

    That is one for your neurologist. He/She may know an answer to that or at least try to get one.

    I do know that you can develop swimmers disease. where thsy bring you up TOO fast and then you have to be put in a hyperberic chamber for hrs to bing dow the pressure that you were in. Maybe that can casue szs, don't know. anyhting is ppossible.

    I have do some research on this but didn't really list anything like this. Best bet would be to talk to a Dr. about this. It has been my experience that changes in environment can cause them to happen. Although I am no expert. It may but they again it may not.
