Seizure in sleep. X-ray done. Found opacity in heart. Cause for seizure?

I used to have epilepsy that my neurologist said went away last August. Night before last my son found me having a seizure in my sleep. I didn t miss any medicine or anything like that. I wasn t feeling right at all the following day and a friend brought me to the hospital. They just called and said that they found opacity on the xray that they took of my heart . What does that mean? Could that be what could ve caused the seizure?

Thanks for the query,

Your opacity in the heart detected by X ray need further evaluation by either CT scan/ECHO test to confirm the exact cause so that we can guide you and let you know if this is related for your seizures or not. For seizures, you can meet a neurologist and get evaluated with clinical interview and investigations like Electroencepohalogram (a test which maps the brain function and tells if you have seizure activity in the brain) and MRI scan of the brain. This will establish the cause of he seizure and so that your treatment becomes easy.

Hope this helps
Best wishes
