Q:

1/28/2013
I have a patient who is wondering if his seizures are related to his allergies. Have you ever encountered such patient where they will be suffering from seasonal seizures? There is such mention on the internet! The patient describes something that last few seconds. All the tests were normal. But I wonder what the experts have to say. Thanks a lot.

A:

Thank you for your inquiry.

I am not aware of any relationship between allergies and seizures and, like you, could find no credible evidence of this relationship via a search of the medical literature.

Thank you again for your inquiry.

Sincerely,
Phil Lieberman, M.D.
