Psychogenic (si-ko-JEN-ik) Seizure
at 11:28 AM
I was looking to see if any news came out this morning and I found this article which I think is interesting. The odds are getting more and more unusual day-by-day. In the article, it says:
Hmmmm... Anyone else find things to be strange?
...Dr. Kelley Parnell, a Richmond neurologist who published a detailed study on psychogenic or pseudo seizures in the Journal of Neurology in 1999 while completing an internal medicine internship at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., said Wednesday she’s never heard of the ailment causing death.
There is a very slight chance of death in an epileptic seizure, but 'it is so rare,' she said.
'There may be some data on (death caused by psychogenic seizure) but I’ve never heard of it,' she said.
