| | Car accident led to seizure?
My wife just had her first ever seizure. It was devastating to watch, especially not knowing what was happening at first. Today we meet with the Neuro to find out what happened. Her mom had epilepsy for years, but my wife was tested and always came out clear. She has been getting more migraines lately, so her doctor changed her medicine to Elival. We learned that Elival can cause seizures. She also had a car accident three months ago. She was hit hard on the driver's side. She didn't hit her head too hard but did have a strong whiplash injury. Hopefully the Neuro can sort it all out. It seems that all three things contributed; family history, Elival, car accident.
