Like the title says, my family thinks playing metal, (deftones, NIN, Rage Against The Machine) triggers seizures. They also believe so with ska and up tempo music. I was diagnosed as epileptic when I was about 17 but have been having seizures (partial, full, and another kind I cant recall) since I was 13 and I am 23 now. Ive been to the states to numerous facilities and have had no luck finding meds that get me stable long enough. I managed to get my college degree, and worked for 2 yrs at a wood company but had to quit because its been a rough few days for me health wise. In a nutshell I was hoping some of you could point to me to relevant literature on how music and playing music relates to this disease EPILEPSY. My family begs me to quit playing but it keeps me sane and non depressed at times when things get rough. If others have gone thru simila experiences I think this is an appropriate thread to share some stories. My disease was caused by a 10 feet head first fall when I was 8 or 9. I've never messed around with drugs and dont drink a sip of alcohol (or havent for 3 4 yrs, and pretty much.... LOOKING FOR LITERATURE THAT PROVES MY FAMILY WRONG SO THEY CAN BE AT PEACE WHILE I PLAY.
