EPILEPSY: If you’ve been told your child has it, he probably hasn’t

© What Doctors Don't Tell You (Issue 99)

If your child is diagnosed with epilepsy, get a second opinion immediately. There is a very high probability that he doesn’t have it at all. Epilepsy is misdiagnosed in nearly a third of all cases, a new report has announced, an astonishing finding that has been supported by pediatricians ‘in the field’.

This rate has been confirmed by a report from the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust in the UK, and from evidence from the Proceedings of the International League Against Epilepsy.

This alarming state of affairs came to light after 300 families started legal action against a pediatrician in Leicester who had misdiagnosed their children with epilepsy.

Neither report highlighted the terrible drug regimen that follows an epilepsy diagnosis. So powerful are the anti-epileptics that some children have died while on them. To know that their child never had epilepsy in the first place may be too much for some parents to bear.
