From this study (10 months ago):
I am epileptic or was as a child. I have not had a seizure in about 3 - 4 years now. I recently went to have my implant changed. This is my third one. All of a suddeni am experiencing frequent déjà vus, headaches and my anxiety is growing.
I eat incredibly healthily and exercise most days. No drugs, hardly any alcohol and a strong life.
Realising that perhaps my implant may have something to do with this and I have just never realised it!
