Lil Wayne
was hospitalized again for a seizure ... TMZ has learned.
 
Sources close to Wayne tell us ... the rapper was taken to Cedars-Sinai in L.A. late Tuesday night by his bodyguards.   We're told he suffered a single seizure and was treated and released early this morning.

As we first reported, 30-year-old Lil Wayne spent a week at Cedars back in March after suffering multiple severe seizures that nearly killed him.  He spent 6 days in ICU.

Wayne subsequently went on the radio and explained he's an epileptic, and has been suffering from seizures since he was a kid.

F*CK ALL OF YOU!!!
i knew nothing about this guy except that he was a rapper, but the headline that "he had another seizure" was enough to catch my attention. i was diagnosed with epilepsy when i was 11. now, 27 years later, it's only progressively gotten worse. (although not much of a drug user, i did learn that smoking pot and the medication depakote tend to negate each other) facts: the "flashing lights" are only a trigger mechanism for a very small percentage of people who have sezuires, and is only caused by a very small bandwith of flashing lights. medication can only control or regulate seizures, not stop them completely. neurologists still have no idea as to what causes epilepsy, although studies show it is more common among people with higher I.Q.'s (stick that in your crack pipe and smoke it). seizures are very physically taxing, and can cause serious injury (i myself over the years have required countless stitches, numerous staples to my scalp, a few broken bones, and even ten days in a coma). if you don't like the man, fine. but if you want to use your ignorance of a valid medical condition as an excuse, may you die horribly and painfully from one.

Call it what it is TMZ..It's a drug overdose again. The seizure comes after the overdose you idiot. Stop misreporting the true facts Harvey! Lil Wayne apparently doesn't enjoy life..He's throwing his away..
