This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry you had seizures after a car accident.
severe stress and emotional distress and not eating and not sleeping can put stress on your body and increase the likelihood for seizures.
also trauma to the brain and head after a car accident can cause bleeding below the bone and this can cause headaches and put pressure on the brain and cause seizures as well
you should have had a brain CT scan to look for bleeding under the bone in your skull to see
did you have a brain CT scan?
did you see my reply above?
well, if you had a seizure, maybe it wasn't nothing
in the USA, you would have had a head CT scan
since you had a seizure, you need a brain CT scan or brain MRI scan now.
what drug are you taking that it would be the side effect?
so you had head injury from your car accident.
and you had a seizure? you should get a brain CT scan
stopping the co codamol usually doesn't cause seizures.
it would be a shame if you had a bleed in your brain and it was assumed it was caused by the co codamol instead of checking for the bleed
do you know the story of actress Natasha Richardson who Died of an Epidural Hematoma After a Skiing Accident
she hit her head skiing and this caused a bleed in her brain which she died from.
stopping co cocodmal can in some patients cause seizures
when the withdraw symptoms stop, the seizures should stop
if the seizures continue, you need a brain CT scan
