Dec 7, 2016 · Living with epilepsy - Introduce yourself & meet others in Epilepsy & Seizures

I have been trying to figure out why and what to do to figure out if my Epilepsy is caused by Chiari Malformation and if they are related and what options I may have to figure it out. Every Dr. I have been to has been absolutely no help.

Dec 7, 2016 · Trying to figure out what would cause Epilepsy, related to Chiari? in Epilepsy & Seizures

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.
