Suffered sudden seizure. Negative MRI, EEG normal, taking oxy-elite pro, energy drinks. Causes?

I had a major seizure on Tuesday morning at XXXX while waiting to get on a plane. I woke up in a hospital bed. I dont have epilepsy and Im not a withdrawing addict. My MRI was negative and my EEG tests were normal., so now I am looking into things I may have done to cause this: 1) I didnt sleep well the night bepore. 2) I didnt really eat any breakfast 3) I have taken a 5 Hr energy Drink- extra strngth and 4) I had taken 2 Oxy-elite pro diet suppliemnts. most of what i am reading say this is what could have cuased my rogue seizure. thoughts?

The things that are likely to contribute to your seizure most are the diet supplement, the energy drink and decreased sleep. The medications that you have taken are stimulants and can cause seizures. Sleep disturbance also similarly increases tendency to have seizures. I would advice you to avoid it in future or take it under medical supervision only. As for the seizure routine scan and EEG can be done.
Good luck.
