Hi- I found the website while googling running with epilepsy. I have always been a slim fit active person. In 2016 I was hit by a motorcycle as a pedestrian. I have had a craniectomy and two cranioplasties (The second after I suffered two seizures -though didn’t know that’s what they were-and fractured the original PMMA (plastic) cranioplasty...while out running on my own)
I also had a broken neck, right side paralysis, was in a coma for a couple weeks and have lost my left peripheral vision during the accident in 2016.
I now have a titanium skull so that’s fixed the skull, but I have been diagnosed with epilepsy. Seizures are brought on my lack of sleep and emotional stress.
I am happy to say that mobility and and fitness have returned. I worked with a trainer in 2018, do Pilates twice a week and have started swimming with a coach once a week.
I am really keen to run again but a little hindered by my confidence and the voices of well meaning concerned loved ones. Thoughts?
