Seizures related to Heart Problems?
My son, who just turned 18 started having seizures this year Aug. 4th.  They apparently are non-epileptic, and he doesn't seem to have stress that is triggering this.  He's happy, not worried about anything - at least so he says.  My oldest child saw a show called mystery diagnosis which featured a young lady having sudden unexplained non-epileptic seizures, and like my son, it was suggested that they may be stress induced.  Long story short, she ended up back in an emergency room with seizures, and it was determined that she had some fatty build up around her heart which was interfering in the oxygen that was getting to her brain - or lack thereof, thus, triggering the seizures.  Is this a possibility and should I have my son seen by a cardiologist?

If the neurologist has ruled out epilepsy then it wouldn't hurt for your son to have a cardiac workup.  My son also has seizures and while they were first diagnosing him, part of his workup included cardiology.  It took a long time, but they finally determined that my son did have an unusual form of epilepsy.

I wish you the best of luck.
