Lil Wayne announces that he is epileptic and blames seizures on “stress, no rest and overworking.”
Lil Wayne has kept quiet since his hospitalization in Los Angeles, California earlier this month. However, in a new interview, the New Orleans, Louisiana emcee opened up for the first time since his hospitalization.
“The bad news is I’m epileptic so I’m prone to seizures,” Wayne explained. “This isn’t my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth or seventh seizure. I’ve had a bunch of seizures. Y’all just never hear about them. But this time, it got real bad because I had three of them in a row. With the third one, my heart rate went down to like 30 percent,” he explained. “The reason being for the seizures is just plain stress, no rest and overworking myself.”
Wayne continued, saying that he’s never had three consecutive seizures before and that this was a more dangerous case than he is used to.
“I have people around me. I’ve actually had [seizures] so much, they already know what to do. They already expect it. They already know how to handle it. Certain times I don’t even go to the hospital but this time it was real bad because, like I said, it was three in a row. I’ve never had three back-to-back like that and the third one was so bad.”
