Geomagnetic fluctuations and seizures

Question

Hi, we have a son who goes through really intense status seizures when there are changes in the earths geomagnetic field.  We are searching for other people who have experience with this.  Does anyone report unusual symptoms such as seizures, headaches, mania, or other neurological issues during or right after storms?  We have been keeping a seizure diary and have backlogged all his seizure events with spaceweather history to reveal a nearly 100% correlation.  Seizure symptoms occur in him instantaneously, we sometimes can tell what’s going on with the magnetosphere before it’s updated on spaceweather.  Is there anyone out there with a similar experience?

thanks, 

mike

Besides the obvious advice of seeking medical attention for this immediately, which I hope you will do if you haven't already... this is what I think:

A "nearly 100%" correlation is unfortunately not a 100% correlation; you ought to expect your discovery to be discredited immediately without more data to show actual correlation. For instance, human beings do not possess geomagnetic-sensing capabilities as far as I or anyone on Earth knows, and if there is indeed research and experimentation showing real causality in Space Weather, and not proven medical conditions, please provide such, so as to convince me/anyone to see things your way and begin moving forward with this newfound discovery. 

This log of yours uses SWL's data only, which is absolutely incomplete in terms of the information we could probe within the Earth's magnetosphere. It could also have been below 15% humidity every day your son had an episode, which would be a more positive correlation in your experiment than what it is you're attempting to prove is a causality. Science is, in part, eliminating information from the "equation" that doesn't need to be there in order to ascertain some semblance of real truth and fact; have you done that at all?

Look up: "Confirmation Bias"

In any case, get your son to a Doctor. Doctors are trained to diagnose and choose a method of treatment for countless conditions in their school of medicine. Treating seizures is more imperative than noting coincidences in Earth's geomagnetic state. After all, would you rather discover the cause of his seizures was something that was too poorly understood to be treated, or a known disease that likely can be treated?? I choose the latter!

Hi cazador, thanks for the advice!! I think you are right on about getting medical help.  And you don’t have to worry, we sure have.  We have seen multiple specialists and have worked with neurologists as well as a geophysicist.  We do not think we have ‘discovered’ anything.  Geomagnetic storms causing seizures is nothing new and a simple search will reveal many many studies, peer reviewed and published.  We do not need confirmation from outside sources that this is happening.  We are just looking for others who share this sensitivity.  Our data comes from many sources around the world, not just SWL, and we do not need coaching on scientific methods.  Thank you for your time, next time though maybe stick to conversations that you can be a positive contributor to.

thanks

 

My last seizure was on 31.01.2019.

Hi Mike,

Can you link to a few of those peer reviewed studies?

It already takes quite a bit of effort to measure the effect of geomagnetic variations on earth, as man-made local variations are comparably strong, depending on the location. I quote from the SAM Network sensor installation guide:

Quote

Place the sensors in a magnetically quiet location where they will experience as little local magnetic disturbance as possible, usually in an open field or yard away from any buildings and automobile traffic.
It is important to remember that the magnetic sensor will pick up any variation in the local magnetic field, including automobiles, trucks and trains moving in the area, ferromagnetic tools brought nearby and other manmade magnetic disturbances. Any movement of the sensor or movement of ferromagnetic materials in its vicinity will cause a variation in the magnetic field measurements.

I'm curious how these studies were conducted. By walking around in a building you experience greater magnetic fluctuations than from any geomagnetic storm.

Michael,

My daughter and I, as well as a few of my friends, all experience similar symptoms during solar flares and geomagnetic activity. The symptoms rage from violent mood swings, headaches, flu like body pains and extreme fatigue. I’ve bedn too hundreds of doctors over the past 15 years, to be told I have “fibromyalgia.” Everyone else that has these issues has also been diagnosed with this catch all “syndrome.” I don’t think doctors have a clue honestly. They are great at treating acute emergencies and addressing life threatening situations, but beyond that, it’s a “rule everything out” game.

its frustrating to say the least. If you’ve seen a doctor and received no help, I’d recommend exploring alternative or eastern healing modalities. I’ve had success with CBD oil, spirulina and chlorella, and on days with geo activity, high doses of vitamin c and double the water intake. What you are going through the medical field does not address, and MANY are skeptical to believe because it’s out of the norm from societal “medical” conditions. You aren’t alone though!

Sorry you are having such trouble. Hope your son gets by. But, your log is of very considerable science value, and at some time the system will wake up. Keep at it, if circumstances permit. At a guess, it may be possible, very carefully, to generate a counter-field. A friend has an auto system for plants. Get back if so minded.

I just discovered this post and am so glad to see others talking about this.  I have noticed very clearly that I experience a specific feeling of oppression and negativity 3 days before a solar wind event is predicted to reach Earth.  I will often get the characteristic "feeling", then look online to see if a coronal hole is facing earth and see that it has just turned towards Earth, but the solar wind event from it will take approximately 3 days to get here.  My theory is that there is some sort of energy wave or shock wave that precedes the solar wind itself, but current science is, as of yet, unable to detect this particular energy (so ignores or ridicules evidence of it, as science has so often done with so many other things until it can finally actually somehow measure the phenomenon).  EM

Ya know its hard to believe finding a current discussion about this. 2 of the most unpredictable events that humans have ever known, or experienced, are Seizures and Solar Activity (with old g/f and mother in a tight race). There is no record when either began, and will probably be some of the final events humans endure as well... And, in all that time... and the time to come... there is a very good chance either may forever be MIS--understood, and therefore open to discussions of discovery and share genuine experiences. We may never be able to help ourselves, but, all of us have opportunities to assist those to come. I am much appreciative for the beginning of this "Down to Earth" dialogue (literally)... The next step here is to update the old laptop so I can also share. Terrible Events but this is a Wonderful Topic. I guess I'm a bit partisan though... more to follow...
