A friend of mine had what he thought was a seizure. They could find nothing but he lost his license also. For one documented seizure. A year later he had a "seizure" but was dead before he hit the floor. They found in autopsy a kink in one of the artery's in his heart. No warning other than a seizure a year ago. Go to a cardiologist if you haven't already done so.

The Heart Attack May have been seizure related. Over 65 % of people w/ seizure activity are diagnosed w/ 'Unknown Cause'. It may be possible he was experiencing 'undetected' types of seizures. I just learned that I have a seizure disorder where I have seizures in my Sleep w/ no physical Activity/evidence. After 30 yrs of Normal EEG's.

I Know Any seizure activity can affect the Heart. But, I will do some 'homework' & Learn More about HA or Heart Problems Causing Seizures. I do know that Over 65% of people w/ Seizures have 'unknown Cause'. Plus, I agree, anyone w/ 1 or more seizures Should have their Heart checked. I know my Sis had a Stroke after 36 yrs of Seizure activity. I had my check up several yrs ago & all was fine. I am considering asking DR for another test to check Arteries. Thank You for Sharing & your Great Advice!

OK, Now I Know! Heart Attacks or Heart Problems Can cause seizures. WHY? Because a HA or Stroke can cause a Lack of Oxygen in the brain & cause the seizure.
