I found myself trying to reply to Doug.
An hour later, satisfied with the research and reply, my answer wouldn’t “post”.

Imagine a tiny, unobtrusive brain monitor — like an earbud or a hearing aid — that could read brainwaves through the ear.
Amazing as it sounds, this tiny device could help predict seizures and track daily seizures in people with uncontrolled epilepsy, according to a small pilot study.
In a fraction of a second, head trauma can dramatically change a person’s life.
Head trauma caused by falls, physical abuse, violence, vehicle crashes and sporting accidents, not to mention modern warfare.
However, it’s important to realize that not all head injuries, even severe ones, result in seizures. And seizures frequently occur in people who haven’t experienced head trauma.
A new study shows that a simple blood test can determine whether or not someone has had an epileptic seizure.
A newly-released report from Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) has revealed that 28 new medications are in development to treat epilepsy and seizures.
As an orphan drug, you can see why epilepsy isn’t way up front in the funding department.
But, miraculously, there are 7 new drugs that have come down the line.
Here’s a brief summary of each…
