I have been diagnosed as having Epilepsy simply because I started having
seizures two years ago. Supposedly, I have been an epiletic since I hit
my head 30 years ago and supposedly have been having mini seizures (high
pitch ringing, seeing colored spots, etc.) ever since the accident.
In addition, one doctor finally put me on Synthyroid for having a TSH of
5.0, especially since my family has had a long history of Hypothyroidism.
My question is: IS IT POSSIBLE THAT MY HYPOTHYROIDISM IS CAUSING MY
SEIZURES? That I am really not an epiletic.... Also my daughter is
borderline as having Hyperthyroidism. She is been having a lot of dizzy
spells lately, headaches and she is freezing all the time. Supposedly, all
of this is contributed to stress. DO I NEED TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT HER
There is no documented relationship between hypothyroidism and it
is not at all likely that your hypothyroidism is contributing in any way
to your seizures.
The symptoms you mention in your daughter are very suggestive of
hypothyroidism, she may need a thyroid supplement.
There is no evidence that the diseases are linked in any way.
