Re: thyroid disorder that results in seizures?

Google "Thyroid Disease and Chorea Psychosis" and you'll find a UK study that found Asian Males (rarely) suffered from impaired conciousness and periodic paralysis. They didn't call it a seizure---they just said that very rarely, they saw this happen.
This was associated with Hyperthyroidism (thyrotoxicosis).

Re: thyroid disorder that results in seizures?

Hashimoto's encephalopathy causes seizures, but it's extremely rare, fortunately. But it can't really be called a "thyroid" disorder, because it's an autoimmune brain disorder only sometimes associated with Hashi thyroiditis.

Re: thyroid disorder that results in seizures?

Midwest - that is VERY interesting. I've never heard that term before and after looking it up, it seems tremors are common and that's been at least one of my problems. Im not going to assume I have every disease in the book, includign this very rare version of Hashi's, but its good to know that something like that exists in case I cannot find the ultimate diagnosis for my tremors. You never know. Other than the convulsions, every other symptom describes my problem almost perfectly.
