A 38-year-old male asked:
Why can acupressure mats cause seizures, which they did for me? i then noticed: "warning: do not use if you are pregnant, have epilepsy, or are using anticoagulants or blood thinning medications."

What??: Under no circumstances can use of an acupressure mat cause seizure activity, unless you tripped on one and suffered head trauma. Stop dancing around your problems, see a neurologist asap and get on antiepileptic meds. Are you aware of sudep, a cause of death in your sleep if you have inadequately treated nocturnal seizures?
