Can sports concussions cause a type of epilepsy? In the last several years or so a new area has appeared on the radar screen - Sports Concussions - and it is growing rapidly. Recently (2011) quarterback Terry Bradshaw said that his memory was affected by repeated sports concussions as a football quarterback and it's now affecting his ability to be a FOX TV sports news analyst. What is surprising is that Bradshaw said he went to an ADHD Clinic for treatment of his memory difficulties/his sports concussions. Does Terry Bradshaw have ADHD or a form of epilepsy (aka paying attention/memory difficulties) or what? Your insights into this emerging field of sports concussions and the many epilepsies? Sports concussions have caused new laws to be written in many states (not all states yet) so it is a big, big area mixing politics and medicine and schools and sports and the many epilepsies, ADHDs, auditory processing disorders, and so on. Your view on the topic of sports concussions and the epilepsies? The general consensus is that for decades the whole topic of sports concussions has been swept under the rug by the powers that be but that has all changed in about the last two years or so.
