:: I've seen a connection too. One day while the weather was awful, I had to take my seizuring daugther to a hospital in Toronto. I called my local Epilespy Society chapter and found that two women who work there, both their children were seizuring that day too, and no one could leave the city to go to the hospital with us. As well, my daughter's teacher is convinced there's a connection, as three kids in my daughter's class will seizure when the air pressure changes drastically or during thunderstorms.
