So I have never found a trigger my siezures beyond them occuring around my period...but I think I might be on to something. Maybe even something that might give me the origin to my seizures- since they haven't found anything on my CT scans or MRI. I went out for Thai food this week and last to a specific place. I had a small siezure right after eating both times. The first time I didn't think much of it since I was on my period, but it was my only one that week (odd, I didn't have more that cycle) but the second time I looked at my plate suspiciously. I had crab rangoon both times, but I had it once before at this place and didn't react so *scratch*...
However, I recalled the number of times in the past four years that my seziues began at the dinner table. Some of my worst ones began at the dinner table. Could I have an allergy to something? Why would I not be reacting to it more often outside the time of my period? Some minor research does pull up that allergies are stronger during menstration. Could I be more predisposed to a reaction then when my seizure threshhold is lower as is?
I'm going to have to keep track of what I eat now.
Does anyone else have anything similar to this, or heard of it? Is it a possibility?
