I was beat up, having seizures and blacking out


A little over a year ago, I was beat up. Was in a rehab hospital until I got out of there. My seizures come and go, usually pretty mild. Lately, they have been more often and I black out. I don't want to go back to the rehab place, don't want to go to the dr. My social worker said if I'm not careful, I might have a stroke? I never heard that one before. Will these continue like this, get worse or will things finally calm down?
