Does it mean anything??

So, my neuro asked me questions about my thyroid today.  It just so happens that half of my thyroid was removed due to a benign tumor.  Why would this have anything to do with my grand mal seizures?

Hormones

The thyroid gland is an integral part of the endocrine system.  It plays a huge role in metabolism and hormonal levels.  If there's a problem with the thyroid, then there can be a problem with hormone balance and metabolism, which can provoke seizures.

That's the basic gist.  Hope ya'll can get to the heart of the problem.

Missydc,

Thank you for your reply.  Just FYI...my EEG came back abnormal, yet my MRI was normal, so we will see if my neuro wants to do any thyroid tests.
