Lil Wayne

My Seizures Strike

Without Warning

breaking news

Lil Wayne says he doesn't know what it's like to experience a seizure ... because every time he has one, he completely blacks out.

Wayne -- along with his mentor Birdman -- sat with Sway from MTV and explained how his seizure episodes always strike without warning.

"So everybody knows, I don't know that it happens," ... adding, "I go to sleep and wake up in the hospital."

 "I don't feel anything. I just hope it stops happening."

Wayne says he's struggled with headache issues in the past ... but he hasn't experienced any head pain in the moments before the seizures strike.

Wayne has suffered multiple seizures over the past few months ... and was hospitalized for several days in L.A. in March after a series of very serious episodes.

Weezy says the doctor has given him some tips to stay healthy ... and so far, the rapper says he's following orders.

Seizure medication, avoiding alcohol and drugs, keeping stress down, and proper diet and exercise usually allow people with epilepsy to avoid seizures. People who chug codeine, take other drugs, and don't have a clean lifestyle are never going to get the seizures under control and they can kill. My son had childhood epilepsy and we nearly lost him a few times. He no longer has seizures but he also doesn't live the type of life that this guy does.

I believe that... my father was epileptic and had grand mal seizures nearly once a month. They were more scary for us, his family, than for him. He had no idea they were happening, and afterward, it took about 30 minutes to several hours for him to become fully alert again. Most of the time, the seizures happened at home and we knew how to deal with them... but if one happened in public, they always called an ambulance, even if he didn't need one. Most of the time, we had to tell hospital staff what to do... or what not to do.

For example, and I'm SOOOO not kidding... no blonde female could get near him during this recovery phase after a seizure, because he would automatically grope their breasts and he'd make rooting faces, like a newborn baby. These idiots would look at him and think he was awake or alert, and we'd tell them... no... he may look alert, but trust us, he's not. Heh... fine, don't listen to us then... but we're telling you, if you go near him right now, you're going to regret it. Sure enough...the blondies always got it. He was never rough, you just had to push his hand away, Sadly, my dad never had any recollection of it and was deeply embarrassed when he'd be told he'd done it again. He was a deeply religious, good man. His neurologist says it was likely some misfiring nerves in his brain... he was a foster child who was abused and saw his first adoptive mother commit suicide. The abuse is why he was epileptic.

Epilepsy can be scary, and each patient is different. While, for some, diet and exercise can help... for others it can't. It depend son the type of epilepsy.

Yeah, he claims to have epilepsy his whole life, yet doesn't talk like a person who is used to having an illness his whole life. The doctor gave him some quit using drugs, probably.

Glad to hear that he is following doctor's orders. His life may be less exciting but it will certainly be longer if he lives a drug-free life. God Bless
