I'm 35, have a wife and 2 boys, and 7 years service with a fire dept. In Aug. of 2008, I suffered a CVA (stroke) on duty, which was written off as a TIA, although a small anomaly in the brain was noted in the CT or MRI. Immediately upon release from the hospital I began having what was diagnosed as Partial Complex Seizures 5-8 times a day for the next year. I advised my Neurologist (the same one from the hospital that diagnosed the CVA as a TIA) that I was feeling a brief anxiety or fear and other strange feelings for a few seconds, then I would babble incoherently for about a minute. He said it was anxiety attacks and placed me on xanax.(sp?) I advised him that I didn't think it was an anxiety attack because we run on those through the fire dept frequently and it didn't resemble one, nor did it ever last more than 2 minutes. Anyhow, a year after the diagnosis, I wrecked a Rescue truck while having a seizure and was finally properly diagnosed by a different hospital and neurologist.
Since then, my weight has dropped from 220 to 145 lbs (I'm nearly 6ft) and I throw up almost daily. I take meds to control the seizures and I cannot return to duty with the dept. My income and insurance are out this month.
