    Hi my name is Helen and my husband suffers from seizures that was brought on by lyme disease that went to his brain. Did this happen to anyone else? He suffers terribly and breaks my heart as he can't remember anything and suffers pain in his body after the seizures occur. He is a strong man with a wonderful heart.

    Hello Helen,

    This Issue hasn't been discussed in this group. But, I googled to find more Info. Yes, it has happened to others'. From what I read I certainly feel for your Hubby. Pain & memory loss are common factors following a seizure. A Supervised Epsom Salt bath may help w/ the pain. The memory Loss, nothing can be done. As his caretaker, you need to start a Journal. Please read the Journal info in Helpful Tips.

    Here is a link for an article about this. http://www.columbia-lyme.org/patients/ld_lyme_symptoms.html Use your Google or Yahoo Search Engine to learn even more. I would use the Term Treatments in your Search, also.

    I know it's hard to watch someone have a seizure. Or at least, I have been told that by Lots of people. My Hubby is my Caretaker. I know how the aftermath can be. I slept for days after a seizure. Barely able to get out of bed to go to the bathroom or fix something to eat. Recoup period varies w/ each individual & the Seizure Type. WebMD Epilepsy Health Center is an excellent source to learn about different types of seizures. I encourage you to Learn More & know what to watch for.

    Hopefully, your Hubby's seizures will go away during his Lyme Disease Treatment. I do hope you will keep us posted on his Progress. Hugs

    Love Candi
