Lil Wayne says that when he was diagnosed with epilepsy it wasn't his first, second or even third seizure but that he has had close to 10 seizures. he says the he doesn't know what it feels like because he instantly blacks out and wakes up when they are over.
Lil Wayne says that the worst seizure he has ever had was went he suffered three seizures in a row, and the third seizure was so bad that his heart rate dropped to around 30% which could have caused him to die.
As of now there is no cure for epilepsy but you can take medication that will help with the seizures. although there can be other treatments for epilepsy, it is very rare that they will work so most of the time people are just given medication.
