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.
