I want to welcome you to HealingWell. I'm sorry, I don't have an answer for you. Are you being seen by a neurologist? I do not have any idea what abnormal brain tissue means. Darren, the moderator of the forum, will probably be around later on. He lives on the other side of the world and is probably fast asleep right now. I just wanted to respond and let you know that someone is hearing you.
Hi there T-Fox,
I guess the main question here is whether you are likely to have a seizure. The honest answer is that everyone is different and the potential is different. Things like excessive alcohol intake, lack of sleep, drugs (including some pharmacuticals) can all cause seizures. If I were to do those things, I would almost certainly have a seizure. Did the doctor give you any other information about the 'abnormal brain tissue' ? Please know that you are definately being heard and I, like the other moderators and members here, will give you all the support, advice and information we can.
It sounds like (and I am going out on a limb here) like the 'abnormal tissue' may have been there for some time and my gues is that if it has not caused you a problem up to now, I guess its not likely to cause you a problem in the immediate future. But as I said in my previous post, everyone is different so there is no way of really guaranteeing it. Even if you did have a seizure and were diagnosed as having a seizure disorder such as Epilepsy, there is no reason why you shouldnt go to college. Dont let seizures (or the fear of them) hold you back from following your dreams / living your life.
