Epilepsy????: If you mean burning after eating, that could be GERD. WHOSE suspicion epilepsy? Yours? Your doctor's? A neurologist's? Epilepsy is not a diagnosis to be taken lightly. It usually requires lifelong drug therapy. Advice re tests: Do NOT saddle yourself with "epilepsy" without a thorough eval by a neurologist. There is NO SUBSTITUTE for that. Hawthorn and herbal remedies are useless; don't bother.
