: : Has your child or yourself suffered from some form of epilepsy post some vaccination? my son's epilepsy began. I BELIEVE as a result of the school campaig MR(measles rubella vaccine) (amongst other things) which vaccine caused yours?
: My daughter who is now 19 years old started having seizures when she was 9 after receiving her second MMR vaccine in 1990. She had what was labeled as viral encephalitis and viral pancreatitis. All test for common viruses were negative. She was very healthy prior to the vaccination. The mumps part of the vaccine is the culprit. Luisita
I was forced by the university school system in my state to recieve a MMR booster shot. As a child, I had been very allergic that vaccine. To finish my degree I took the requires booster at 21 and had my first seizure about 6 months after that. I have had grand mal seizures ever since. EEG tests have been mixed lacking clear epiletiform activity and no brain abnormalities were found in 3 different MRI's. I think it was the MMR booster. Any information of research links would be appreciated.
