    Parkinson's disease seizures

    My father has parkinson's for about 4 years now. He recently started to have seizures. When they occur, he is like fainted. After 5-6 minutes he comes back to normal stage. We had him checked and they say sometimes the blood flow to the brain stops for few seconds and flows again. Is this common? What is the treatment for this? They have prescribed Levipil tablets for this. Are these seizures are going to keep happening? help!

    RE: Parkinson's disease seizures

    The doc needs to check an extended cardiac rhythm test to see what happens when your dad does this. I have epilepsy and was doing something a lot like your dad. I had the long-term monitor on,and my heart was stopping briefly during my seizure...long enough to make me collapse. I have a pacemaker now,and haven't collapsed like that since.
