Kelly Osbourne

Doctors Say

Epilepsy A Possibility

3/9/2013 9:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0308_kelly_osbourne_getty_articleKelly Osbourne's seizure may have been much more serious than first suspected, because doctors say she could be suffering from epilepsy.

Kelly has been hospitalized since suffering a seizure Thursday on the set of "Fashion Police." Sources connected with Kelly tell TMZ ... the seizure was far more serious than first suspected. Doctors are running tests and we're told she'll be in the hospital for at least a few more days.

We're told doctors say there's a real possibility that Kelly is an epileptic, but it's possible it was an isolated incident.  If it's the latter, docs need to figure out what happened and how they can prevent another episode.

In the meantime, Kelly is on anti-seizure meds.

Parental drug use could be the cause.

I agree with bpbqueen. And I would add in the mother also.


Sharon was groupie when she met Ozzy and the two did party hardy in the days.


This is the way battling drug abuse should be done. If you do drugs when you are young, you are taking a chance on having kids with health issues. Some serious.


Teach that to the 6 year-olds as of today and by the time they are 16, not on e will do drugs.

I've always liked Kelly even when she was a dumpy punk...She has a certain star quality...she looks great these days and I wish her well and hopefully this turns out to be nothing.

Aspartame which is an artificial sweetener found in many 'diet' or sugar-free foods is one cause of seizures. Miraculously, when people quit using it, the seizures go away. It also causes brain tumors, and many other serious symptoms of toxic poisoning. Aspartame is found in almost every chewing gum out there. Xylitol gum is a substitute, found in New Seasons stores, etc.

Ok Mackstud; chill out with the trying to prove your knowledge, ya bully. TMZ reported "there's a real possibility that Kelly is an epileptic, but it's possible it was an isolated incident." If you truly know anything about Epilepsy, you would know there are other variables that may indicate a condition versus an isolated event. Praying for the latter. And yes, the term "epileptic" is regularly used in our medical community. Get well soon, Kelly!

It is no coincidence with her and Jack's drug abuse history that they're now having health issues. Look at the condition Ozzy is in.

First off this is the worst article you guys have written basically all it says they are running tests. Secondly if she has epilepsy of not it is really no one's business unless she says so herself. We have no idea if this was something she was dealing with privately. leave her alone and let her recover. We will know what's going on if she wants us to. Stop the nonsense.

It's no mystery that drug use causes seizures - Ozzy himself had these issues many times
