I need information


  Dear Sirs;
  I'm trying to find information about any possible link between propane gas poisoning and seizures and amnesia. A friend was injured on the job when he was overcome by propane and paint fumes. He has been unable to work for over one year because he now suffers from amnesia and seizures. He has 8 t 10 seizure a day. Could there be a link between his acident and the amnesia and seizures? If so, is there are cure for his health problems?  I'm looking for anyone who can help me with this topic.
  Thank you,
  Susan Sweatman

Toxic injury from organic compounds certainly can occur, though I'm not sure the amnesia and seizures are well enough understood to draw a connection. The first order of business is to define the seizure type and the epilepsy syndrome. The amnesia could be a secondary effect of uncontrolled seizures, or part of the original problem. The seizures could be coincidental.
Your friend must be seen by a neurologist, and perhaps a seizure specialist. You are welcome to make an appointment here at CCF for same. The epilepsy specialists here are top notch, among the best in the world. Once the seizures are characterized, only then can a conclusion be drawn regarding the source.
I hope this helps. CCF MD mdf.
