In brief: Epilepsy& back pain
Epilepsy by itself does not cause back pain, but if some one with epilepsy complains of back pain, we have to investigate that as there have been reports of spine fractures, which happenwhen patient gets the attack and can fall down or hit some other stucture or furniture and does not have any memory of that.
Same goes for pain elsewhere.
