Is there any tips from fellow epileptics to working out?

So I’ve been epileptic for about a year now with 7 grand mal seizures. I’m 15, and have always been very physically active- wrestling, football, morning workouts, etc- but ever since this started I get really bad migraines. I had to quit all sports and start golf but now I’m getting fat, any tips on how to workout and not get a absolutely terrible migraine??? Any help would be great

My advice would be very smililar to my advice for anyone who is just starting to excerise again or has medical conditions and start working out.

Take it slow and gradually build up your stamina.

Ensure you are eating correctly and snacking smartely.

Warm up amd cool down.

Pay attention to your body, and discuss with the doctor what is right for you.

Honestly, everyone is different and what works or is best for you may not be right for someone else.

I’ll try to take this into account, but I still tend to get ahead of myself. Thanks
Your blood pressure rising could be part of the problem. I know its hard but you have to pace yourself. Similar to a heart patient.
