Just Found Out that I Have Epilepsy - I'm Worried!!!! You Could Be Next?

Hi everyone,

Well, do I have a story to tell!!

I am writing this at hospital, where I have been on an EEG for the last 12 hours. The doctor has finally confirmed, after looking at the data, that I have a form of epilepsy.

I'm sharing this here because I believe that I could be a victim of a conspiracy, one which seems to be affecting lots of people nowadays. I was listening to Alex Jones only last month when he said to a caller "neurological conditions are increasing like crazy".

I guess I was a pretty typical white British kid. Came from a working class family, went to school, university, did the stuff I was 'supposed to do', I guess. Then, about five years ago, I started getting mild seizures where I would have a bout of confusion for about 30 seconds, and would feel numbness in my left arm. Five years ago, this happened to me once every few months, now it happens about four times a day.

I don't think it is genetic. I think a more sinister culprit is to blame.

About five years ago, right before these symptoms appeared, me, my dad and my brother went for a walk in the country and walked right up to a mobile phone mast ( I mean, right up to it!), we stayed there for about ten minutes before walking on. Since that day, all three of us have developed concerning neurological problems. My dad has migraines and seizures that can last up to two hours, and my brother has problems with motor function/movement, and an MRI revealed a shadow on his brain. My MRI revealed a gap (yes, a gap/hole) in the right side of my brain.

At first I thought this might be genetic, but now I see clearly what the cause is. Non of my other relatives, or ancestors, have or had this problem (as far as I know).

I am writing this to warn you all of the dangers of exposure to radiation from mobile phone masts. Try to stay well away from them if you can.

I'm going to get together with my brother and father soon, and we shall try to sue and get compensation. My dream is that our case will help to change legislation in the UK, and try to make these masts safer.

Thank you for reading my story. It's so nice to know that I can share this with the community here. I hope I can use my experience to help other people.

Sorry to hear about your diagnosis, but then again, I've heard doctors say that a large percentage of people have some form or another of epilepsy. I get occasional dizzy spells, and once in a while I lose my footing out of nowhere, or my head feels like it gets a muscle cramp and I jerk real hard. A doctor told me it may be a form of epilepsy, but if it is nothing more than an occasional nuisance, then I don't need to treat it.

Ever consider that instead of a conspiracy causing it, perhaps it was AJ?
Seems just as plausible as any other theory. In reality, I think we are bombarded with heavy metals, chemicals, and radiation in our environment, so its no wonder that neurological disease is on the rise.

have you had any memory loss at all?? im going to a neurologist on monday
because of memory loss + weird turns where i see things that arent really there and zoning out. i'll pop back in when i have results

Thanks darkhorserider. I really don't know for sure what has caused this problem, but there does seem to be a common link with me, my brother and my dad.

I am very concerned about the NWO are literally waging war on the human body. Vaccines which contain toxic chemicals, chem trails, additives, etc. it is absolutely bloody blatant that the human race is being attacked, and targeted, in a very subtle way on a daily basis.

We are the resistance. We will fight the NWO till the bitter end!

Hi truthseeker,

Yes, I do get short term memory loss quite frequently.

Get it checked out mate. I hope all is well.

If necessary, you may need an MRI and an EEG. A CT scan is also an option, but an MRI is better. I'll be interested to hear what your doctor says.

How old are you roughly? When my mum was approaching her forties, she suddenly got struck with epileptic fits, she'd never had them before, she's only had maybe three or four in her life since then (she's 52 now), we have no history in the family, and it was triggered by a Fat Boy Slim song of all things.
Her brain however showed no signs of being 'epileptic' I don't really know what they look for, but when she had all her tests, they couldn't figure out why she was fitting, but that the fits did fit an epileptic profile

I'm only 30 years old. I'm sorry to hear about your mum. It seems like these days a lot of doctors cannot properly explain away the rise in neurological conditions that seems to be happening.

I will speak with my doctor again tomorrow, but so far I have had no good explanation from any doctir as to what may have caused the problem I have. The typical 'it's genetic" seems to be an idea they are taking on board, but to be honest I don't think in my case that is true.

Sorry to hear about your illness. My husband has it in conjunction with MS.

Perhaps if you think this has anything to do with what Alex Jones says though, perhaps you need to visit the mental ward before you leave.

In other words get fully checked out before you leave. It could be caused by yet another underlying illness.

Thank you, Sissel. I'm really clueless as to why me, my brother and my dad have developed neurological problems all at about the same time. The only thing I can think of is the mast thing.

As far as I know, the only underlying illness I have is mild anemia, which doesn't affect me at all. I do sports, I'm fit and generally all is well except for the seizures.

I really just want people to be aware that neurological problems are rising like crazy. We've got to put an end to this.

Could very well be a combination of factors. Cell phone use added in with your exposure to the tower,-current studies warn about it even more, surely won't help if you already have something that is contributing to the disease-from prior infections to genetics that are recessive. Especially if your home and or work environment poses risk factors. If you all live together I suggest looking more into and testing the home for a carbon monoxide leak, being that some say there could be a link. As well as further search into your genetics, environment, past illness, etc.
Most of all take care of yourself, best of wishes.

if you, your brother and father intend to persue a claim specific to the mobile mast, reports and opinions will be required from a wide range of professionals ranging from medical experts through to radio frequency specialists.
one expert opinion can run into a small fortune and with such a case, the cost may be too prohibitive for most litigation firms to indertake. it may well be a question as to whether the claim can be underwritten to comfort level for the law firm acting for you all. it could be a number of years before the claim is heard.

perhaps a major research period before you all request the services of a solicitor/barrister as i am sure this will attract some big guns to counter the claim and to know your 'enemy' is a wise move.

i wish all three of you the best

regards fakedirt.

are you all light/moderate/heavy users of mobile phones? were you all carrying mobiles near the mast? i am interested in the circumstances surrounding the visit to the mast. this will also be of interest to both plaintiff, defendant and judge.

went to the doctors today he mentioned temporal lobe epilepsy so i have to go for an MRI and EEG like you said, and im not allowed to drive again

Facts are some thing effect some people - and do not others.
Is it possible your condition was brought on by the 'charge' you got just from being under those high tension lines? I believe so.

And I'm sorry.

I wish there was something I could do or say to make it 'all better' but I can't.
The only thing that can be done? We have to start using the Earth and Sky to 'fuel' our lives in ways that is NOT detrimental to the health of people/animals.

But that doesn't help you now does it? Like I said - I am sorry. I'll spend some time on the internet seeing if I can scout up some things that might help you. Foods, vitamins, exercise routines. I'll get back to you. I'd offer you a place at my home for a while - it seems to really cure people - but - it also nearly kills them, lol. We only eat what we grow, no white sugar of any kind, there's NO processed food and everything is natural - along with observing early to be and early to rise, no television, no computer games and limited computer access. Your tinfoil hat is optional. *wink*

Ok, I wasn't going to add this in but I will. A very good friend of mine in NH USA has (had) a herd of lovely goats. A local utility company 'rented' her goats to clear up the shrubbery and greenery from under the power lines. Shudder huh. So, she'd take her goats on a 'walk about' every day etc... She got sick. Her does kidded deformed babies. That's all I can say as she's still trying to prove what the Power company what they already knew.

This happens to me except the numbness in the arm, I still get yelled at at work because they think im f#%king off. One thing different for me is sometimes these adsense seizures put me in REM sleep (?) for a short while, ill have visuals (hardcore daydreams) during some.

I was properly diagnosed with epilepsy when I was 14

Try going on a ketogenic diet.

Also, there are substances which will help improve cognitive function over time.

A small amount of vitamin-c (~1-2%) will cross the BBB. Try popping 500mg every 2-3 hrs and see if that helps.

Loose leaf green tea will help due to the EGCg and l-theanine.

You will need time to adapt to a keto diet. It will likely be difficult over the first several weeks. Everyone adapts at different rates.

Be sure to talk with your doctor before going on keto to make sure there won't be any complications.

You can get better over time if you put in hard work.

Good luck!

I have temporal lobe epilepsy from an auto accident. I've been studying the hell out of epilepsy since 2002. I was allergic to all the epilepsy drugs for various reasons, most because of their suppressing effect on the liver. I use diet to control the epilepsy and have done very well at self medicating this way. I studied the drugs extensively to see what the basis of them is and how and where in nature to find them. I had basically no short term memory when taking the medicine and because of some allergies to the chemistry of the meds, I had more epilepsy with them than without. I have found that certain simple changes to the diet can control temporal lobe epilepsy.

All the natural substitutes for medications have doping effects of various kinds, that is how it works. There are few side effects that give health problems though. The best foods I have found to help is Asparagus, cabbage, potatoes, bacon, and coffee. I suppose Tea would be better than coffee but coffee has a lot of antioxidents in it and helps build long term memories. Fish consumption is a necessity with Epilepsy. Moderation of eating these things is essential also.

Potatoes have four calming chemicals, Cabbage has one or two. Asparagus works very well and only has to be consumed twice a week. Fat and beef/pork consumption lowers stray voltage by using chemicals similar to propanolol, but with all the corn they are feeding these animals the fat contains toxic chemicals that create another problem because all these foods suppress liver function a little as a side effect. A little coconut oil also helps to relax this stray voltage as does real butter. I can go on and on with hundreds of dietary changes and name the chemistry that is helping. An old medicine used to control epilepsy was solomine, a chemical found in potatoes. Too much of this nervine is no good, don't eat green potatoes. Nicotine is also a nervine and nicotinic acid in the potato also works. Nicotinic acid is also found in tomatoes and hot peppers.

It is important to note also that overconsumption of these things can result in deficiencies that can also cause epilepsy. Eating potatoes without butter or another source of vitamin K can lead to a deficiency of vitamin K which also can cause seizures. Sour cream is not a good source, use butter.

If you can take the medication without side effects, go for it. It is an easier solution but if you notice, my suggestions aren't expensive, you have to eat anyway.

I feel for anyone here with neurological is a hard thing to deal with; but things can eventually start to look up as you learn to deal with your memory issues.

To the OP: You have to remember that Dr's are not even sure where epilepsy comes from, or what it really is. All it really means is that you have been diagnosed with a propensity for you brain to produce strange electrical signals leading to seizures. We do know that it has been around a very long time, with reports of siezure activity from the days of ancient Egypt, and China(many famous historical figures are believed to have been epileptic).

I myself was diagnosed with epilepsy earlier this year, after I "slipped" into a set of tonic clonic seizures that didn't stop for 7 days (Which my neurologist seems to think might be some kind of record for "longest epileptic fit"). In the end I lost 2 years of my memories, and have been prescribed a near toxic dose of anti-siezure meds. Now on top of the loss of many of my long term memories, my presrcription constantly f***** up my short term memory.

I say all that to just tell all those out there with similar problems to never give in to despair! Things look down, things get hard, you may even find yourself in situation where you feel like you are living another life all together (like me
) ...but above all you are still alive.

If anyone on here ever needs to talk about health issues (especially speciality) feel free to PM me anytime.

You can drive again...they will however make you wait until you are siezure free for a period of time (the time frame depends on where you live). Like me again: I have been living with my parents, and getting rides from them like a preteen...but one more month siezure free and I can drive myself again.

Narcolepsy here, welcome to the club. I got just one advice. Just chill. Dont stress, don't panic. Trust your body. Also don't chuck down all poisons the MD's give without questioning. Try them out, see what works and what makes you feel worse.

I just came down with it at 40. I also wonder, my seizures started after I started using a cell phone for the first time in my life. Could be coincidence, but who knows. The doctor did say most people start getting them if they are between 40-50.
