My husband had a seizure (his first) on Wednesday morning and was admitted to the hospital for extensive tests--CT scan, MRI, TEE, much blood work. CT scan was negative; MRI showed a small darker area and the neurologist will repeat MRI in 3 weeks to note changes. So far, no definitive diagnosis as to what caused the grand mal seizure. My question: 2 weeks ago he had extensive dental cleaning/scaling (his first in many years)--is it possible enough bacteria entered his bloodstream to cause the seizure in some way? He is 51 years old, in excellent health. Heart problems/carotid artery blockages definitely eliminated as causes. Thank you!
