General question about seizures

Are you still at risk for getting the seizures after you have stopped for a while? Is it something that happens during the withdrawal process only?

There are many possible causes for seizures, withdrawal being only one. If you have concerns about it, seeing your doctor is the best route as this time.

Your quit date is april? I think you are out of the woods as far as alcohol related withdrawl problems.

are you having some symptoms that you can't explain?
if so . . .
go to the emerg dept, could be a stroke coming on... this happened to a friend of mine, for 4 days she was reporting some strange sensations.... then it happened.

I had my seizures about 3 days into withdrawal typically. I can't give medical advice but beyond a few weeks I don't think it will be directly alcohol related.

i knew a guy who had a seizure on his 90 day anniversary...his first meeting lead. It was complicated by alcoholism, but the seizure was from undiagnosed diabetes.
