Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms.

It is difficult to ascertain the reason for rupture of arterio venous malformation (AVM). Most often, the reasons are not known and occurs at a rate of 2% per year. This means that all people would have a rupture of AVM, if they survived for fifty years or more after the diagnosis of AVM.

You should continue anti epileptic drugs to prevent the recurrence of seizures.

In addition, you should sleep adequately- 7 to 8 hours per night and avoid stress.

I hope it helps.

Best wishes,
