Trying to figure out what would cause Epilepsy, related to Chiari?

Posted by @donnak69, Dec 7, 2016

I am trying to figure out why and what would cause Epilepsy at the age of 36. I never had this problem before. After I was diagnosed with Epilepsy I was also diagnosed with Chiari Malformation right afterwards. If my skull apparently quit growing between the age of 11-13 and your skull and brain grow until you are 25 why would I start having these health issues at 36? It makes no sense to me. Are the two related and if not WHY did I start having these seizures at 36? It makes no sense to me.

Good questions Donna. I’m sure you’ve asked your neurologist the same questions. What explanation does she or he give you?

Fellow Chiari malformation members – @maidmarion @david33 @luckypeppersi and @ajgray – do you experience seizures?

Yes, I’m on medication for it, but I stil experience blurred vision from eye tremors/hand tremors at times.. this started at 37 yrs old.
