Epilepsy Stress, Know It Better

Epilepsy Stress, Understand It Better

I’m not going to lie, I smoked a ton of marijuana for the past 5 years (1-10 times daily) and have recently quit. Also for the past year or two I’ve been on pain killers and very stressed because I was unable to sleep or barely breathe from a sports injury which basically broke all my ribs and cartilage and my ribs were trapping my lungs so i couldn’t breathe, but anyway I just quit everything and I am trying to rehab and lately I’ve been feeling weird kind of dazed and confused.

Not sure if its withdrawal because its been close to 2 months since I quit weed. My friend has epilepsy and my symptoms seem close to what he describes but not as intense, I can still talk and communicate but I feel totally in another zone by myself when this comes on. Its usually at night after a long day.

Are there any tests for epilepsy?

can stress alone cause it?

can drug addiction cause it?

thanks for your time.

To answer your query, stress can contribute to epilepsy. To suffer from epilepsy is really disturbing. It is also embarrassing especially if you are protecting your image too much. Seizure and epilepsy can happen even to young people so if you feel that you’re suffering from epilepsy stress symptoms, it is a must that you communicate with a physician right away. The links or articles that I have posted below might help you at one way or another.

    There are tests you get done for epilepsy, they are MRI's , EEG's, 24 hr EEG's and they are the ones that I had done.

    Stress can help bring it on, I worked at home on a farm plus a full time job with mandatoried OT. My Dr's told me that was a large contributing factor.

    No idea about drug addiction causing it.

    Glad to help with my answers.
