Epilepsy Rates Among Veterans on the Rise

Posted on February 15, 2016 by Disability Help Group

Though the majority of epilepsy diagnoses cannot be traced to a specific event some cases are linked to a head injury.  A head injury can trigger epileptic seizures that can affect the suffer for the rest of their life. 

Veterans are in a high risk category for head and brain injuries and are therefore at risk for epilepsy.  Though there are many treatments for the disorder it can be difficult to find the right balance of medications in order to stay seizure free.

If you are a Florida veteran with epilepsy there are many resources available to you.  The Epilepsy Foundation of Florida has just received a grant to help them expand their epileptic veterans program.
