Wed, Nov 13 3:50am · My seizures started after electric shock. in Epilepsy & Seizures

Dear Teresa,
I am 59 and received 3 phase electric shock accidentally, up until then I was in perfect health. I experienced my first seizure 2 weeks after the shock, my wife woke up at 5 am to find me rigid beside her and barely breathing. She carried out CPR and mouth to mouth. As this was my first seizure meds were not prescribed. Meds were only prescribed after 2nd seizure; levetiracetam 500mg, escitalopram tea 10 mg.
After electric shock and prior to my first seizure I experienced blurred vision and some memory loss.
The law in Ireland is 1 year seizure free before driving again.
I really appreciate your response and support. Kind regards, Gerard.

Hello, I am a 59 year old male from Ireland. My seizures began shortly after receiving a 3 phase electric shock. I am convinced the two are connected and wonder if anyone out there has experienced similar? I have undergone scans etc and there is nothing showing up as to cause of my seizures.
Overnight my life has changed,
as in Ireland you cannot work machinery after two seizures. So I am out of work and had to sell my car. This has been a heavy blow and hard to get my head around, for now I cope with the aid of antidepressants and of course anti seizure medications. Hope to find someone going through something similar.
Good luck to you all.
Gerard Gannon.

Thank you for your reply, it enlightens my concerns. I appreciate it.
Have Mayo Clinic come across my dilemma before?
Kind regards, Gerard Gannon

To date I have had MRI, 3TMRI, EEG. Results clear, nothing to indicate why I experienced 2 seizures. I await a prolonged EEG. I personally feel my seizures are linked to a 3 Phase electric shock, which I experienced, there is no other explanation.
I would love to talk directly to you about this. Gerard Gannon, from Ireland.
