MODULE 3: Epilepsy Support and Non-medication Management 5 If you don’t know what your seizure triggers are, try to remember what you were doing before you had a seizure.6 Here are some ideas to think about: • Where were you? • Were there flashing lights or anything else going on around you that may have triggered the seizure? • How did you sleep the night before? • Were you feeling extra stress around the time of the seizure? • What did you eat or drink that day? If you can remember what was happening right before you have a seizure, you can write this down on your seizure diary each time you have a seizure. If someone was with you when you had a seizure, ask if the person remembers anything that might have triggered the seizure. You and your healthcare professional might be able to figure out what your seizure triggers are by looking at your notes.6,10
