    yes stress can cause szs. IT is a trigger along with mamy other things. But thatit like the 3 one for triggerrs.

    Stress causes szs in me.

    So does menses, missed meds, stress, lack of sleep, illness with or without fevers, and so on.

    He is different than everyone else adn no os thesame with what meay trieggers them but stress does definatly cause szs.

    I would take the kid to see a neruo and get it fingered out.

    you mentioned that he only has one sz. On one does not mean epilepsy. 2 or more szs=ep. Talk to Candi about that she can tell you alot more than I can.

    good luck.
