No: Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome is an Autonomic nervous system problem, not in the brain. Epilepsy does come from the brain, but seizures do not kill any brain cells (with the rare exception of status epilepticus). In short, neither problem will kill brain cells--unless you do nothing to control them and they lead to disastrous complications. Take care!
