Smile Have you heard?

I was on the computer last night, and I came across
something to do with epilepsy.Scientists think that they have identified the gene that triggers epilepsy.
They also say that seizures might be predictable by up
to seven minutes.I was just curious if anyone had heard about this exciting news.

I can always tell when I am about to have a seizure. I have a very small one that only I can notice and on average, I will then have my grand maul 3-5 min later. However, if I lay down, I will not have the seizure.

I can always tell too. I too get a strange feeling and I can't form my words properly. I can't remember what I'm saying and then it passes. Depending on how bad this is - sometimes I get a grand mal and sometimes I just feel awful for hours afterwards.
