I had a seizure, well 3 actually, just over 2 weeks ago and am trying to find some positives in my current situation.

I'm 44 and was running 5-6 times a week up to 2 years ago when I had a stroke.
I had a relatively quick recovery from the stroke but rightly/wrongly the seizures scare me more.

I'm also finding the side effects of the medication leaving me so drained and feverish I can't ever imagine running again.

As there are said to be 600,000 epileptics in the UK does anyone have any running knowledge of this situation.
Thx Paul
