“The bad news is I’m epileptic” – Lil Wayne reveals reason for seizures
result, he is prone to seizures when he doesn't have enough rest and

constant health issues, but in a new interview, Wayne, whose new LP, I
Am Not a Human Being II will be in stores on Tuesday, broke his
silence on the issue.
"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

"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."
