Stress and Epilepsy

The Complex Relationship Between Stress and Seizures

Actress Melanie Griffith recently revealed that she was diagnosed with epilepsy following a string of seizures over a period of 20 years. Speaking at an event to raise awareness for Women’s Brain Health Initiative, Griffith said, “Every seizure that I had was at a point when I was extremely stressed.”   Griffith said she now has her condition under control with medication and hasn’t had a seizure in four years, which she partly attributes to the fact that she’s “not stressed anymore.”
