Have you ever had a fall or injure to the head? (I never had it) but I can relate to you. Because I had a dog that gave birth to these 5 puppies. One of the puppies that I gave away later had continues epilepsy. I later found out that the dog's owner abuse her a lot (hitting in the head.) But none of other 5 or the mom or dad had it (I own the mom & dad). The owner ended up giving the dog away to get killed. I had to go the shelter to take the dog back. One thing I noticed that the dog would get seizure whenever she heard loud noises (like my mom yelling) couple hours prior that. May be you could try to figure out if there was any pattern that could help you to prevent the seizures from happening. Some people think it's silly but one thing helps me going through difficult times is to focus on the positives by listening to the audio "The Secret" & "The Power" from Rhonda Burne. I hope you can get cured soon; miracles do happen. I wish you all the best.

Just had a grand mal seizure too...1st time ever. Was diagnosed with chronic severe anemia from uterine fibroids in 2010. Symptoms became very bad in 2012...my hair started coming out in clumps, my hemoglobin was/is very low (5.8), as well as many other symptoms. Does anyone know if smoking marijuana causes fibroids?
