My Paper on Epilepsy and cardiac arrhythmias was published!

Being a person with epilepsy,who ended up getting a pacemaker because of it made me determined to educate nurses to look for this in our patients with epilepsy.

3. Congratulations!

 

Any thoughts on the mechanism?

I've been involved in a couple of projects that involved predicting/treating unexpected cardiac arrest.

4. Congratulations, w8liftinglady

Excellent info. My child recently started having seizures. No concrete diagnosis, even through the myriad of tests. She has heart palpitations and chest tightening as seizure onset symptoms. This info could be a real lifesaver!

7. Very impressive. Congratulations.

This of course is anecdotal, but both my spouse and I were severely poisoned by chronic exposures to pesticides in an adjoining building in 1991-92 and developed severe health problems. Over the years we were able to heal to a degree, but found ourselves getting neurological symptoms everytime we were exposed to pesticides, perfumes (contain petrochemical solvents like toluene), and other neurotoxicants.

Symptoms include cardiac arrhythmias (will both get them at the same time during exposures), headache, joint pain, difficulty concentrating, dizziness, and even seizures (me only).

I was treated for a month at the Dallas Environmental Clinic under the care of Dr. William Rae who is a world class expert on toxic injury. He said that my best strategy is to avoid neurotoxicants at every opportunity.

That of cours is very difficult. While our home and products fit his criteria, the air and the envrionment of most locations is a serious problem. It's a hell of a way to live.

Our alternative medicine doctor says he sees more and more people with our condition, and suspects that the toxicants are not so pervasive that just breathing the air over time is enough to make a person chronically ill with these problems.

I have to say I agree. We notice that the air is much worse that just a few years ago.

8. I've wondered how you've been doing.

Since I don't read this health forum very often, I suppose I've missed your posts, so thanks for the update.

11. Makes a lot of sense to me.

If the epilepsy disrupts circuits involved in autonomic regulation, that is only to be expected...

15. This reporting should extend to unexpected deaths due to police violence as well.
