my husband started taking seizure like episodes when he was 25 also had short term memory loss and extremely bad tremor . They stopped ten years later but still has the bad tremor . My daughter started taking same episodes at 13 slurred speech head shaking unable to walk lasted a minute sometimes taking up to 8 a day but no tests showed up anything back and forward to doctors for 15 years . My son also took same turns but had bad tremor my youngest son has a lot of sore muscles and extremely sore feet and headaches and tiredness .. Now my daughters little girl who is 6 gas started taking them walking as if she's drunk lasts a minute .. My sons has three children and the two boys have started taking them and my little granddaughter is two and isn't walking yet .
