I have a couple of stands of epilepsy and I am having break through small seizures, even though I am taking my medications as prescribed. My question is after I have a day where I am not well lets say, I do not have any power in my right arm and my chest I feel its my heart hurts very much. I was wondering what heart problems are associated with seizures, if any. I know that I have some brain damage and I have forgotten a lot since being diagnosed with gran mal, and so it makes me wondering what exactly are the pains I am feeling in my chest and why I don't have any power in my left arm.
I'm sorry to hear you're having some difficulty. Not knowing your age or other medical conditions, it is tough to answer this question. If you are having frequent chest pain, especiall with L arm numbness/weakness, you need to be evaluated by a physician immediately. This could be the warning sign that you have significant coronary artery disease. If your left arm weakness is constant and unrelated to chest pain, you may have had a stroke or even a brain mass. Again, you should be evaluated immediately by a physician. Epilepsy doesn't have a strong relationship with any particular cardiac disease, though severe heart failure can lead to hypoperfusion of brain and possibly seizure activity in the right setting. I would find a doctor you trust and discuss these issues with him/her as soon as possible. Best of luck to you.
