Hello there. I'm new to this place and it has already been very re-assuring and helpful. This is more of a vain introduction but just wanted to say hello and introduce myself with this question. Sorry to sound like I'm boasting here but this is my wee history. I had a severe nervous breakdown that lead to being sectioned around 4 years ago. I later fell into a catatonic state and needed ECT to get me back in working order.
I never had epilepsy before this life event and of course it led me to be a little curious as ECT does exactly what it says on the tin. Having 12 sessions of it I just wondered if this indeed may have contributed to my later diagnosis of Epilepsy. This has been denied by several neurologists except one but I was wondering if anyone else had a similar experience.
Sorry to bore you all. I hope everyone is getting on ok with their lives just now. I am very fortunate to have a little control of my tonic clonic seizures. Very lucky to have returned to a normal life and grateful that the ECT worked. It saved my life so I am not ungrateful but I just wondered if there were similar incidents here.
Thank you for your time
