What time of year is your epilepsy worst?


The heat of summer aggrivates my seizures a lot, but historically I'm most likely to take an ambulance ride in the spring. I think this is because I can usually live with air conditioning during the summer. I'm not sure why I get bad in the spring, but my health is usually worst all around in the spring.

The fall is my favorite time of year, no contest. I like the cold. Summer is my least favorite time of year. I like the spring ok. I do however much prefer the longer days of summer, just not the hot weather.

Might want to add a 5th category: no different any time of year. That would be the case for me.

Winter is the worst for me because I need fresh, circulating air while sleeping. I can deal with temperature extremes either way but I have to have non-stuffy air to breathe.

(Part of the reason why I moved to a place where you can keep the windows open at night all year long.)

I used to keep my windows open all year in S. CA. It was awesome.

Maybe add time of month for some.

My seizures are changing all the time so there isn't, a paticular time of year the worse anymore.

I live in Florida and am used to the heat, so winter is the worst for me.

I had my first recorded tonic-clonic summer before my freshman year in high school, and my second one last day of my freshman year. By and large though, I've had most of my seizures in the winter time, right around the first cold snap of the season.

I haven't noticed a time of year that is any worse than others, other than times that tend to be stressfull at work or family related.
