Never been a fan of this guy, but a damn tough competitor. Hope it turns out to be nothing

As an epileptic (even though I haven't had a major seizure in about 9 years) I really hope it's not true. Even though I think Shockey is a jackass I wouldn't wish seizures on anybody. The two major seizures I have had were probably the two scariest moments of my life and if he does get diagnosed with epilepsy I wouldn't be suprised if he calls it quits. That's why my doc advised me against getting a physical so I could try out for football in 9th grade, because epilepsy and football just don't mix.

That's terrible. I wish he doesn't have that issue.

[quote]ABC26 Sports and NewOrleans.com have learned that Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey was taken to a local hospital this afternoon.

According to a league source, Shockey was suffering from seizure-like symptoms in the [B]club's[/B] weight room after practice. He was able to walk on his own power to a waiting ambulance.

The team is awaiting a further update on [B]Shockey's[/B] condition.

I had a seizure back in 08. Apparently it was from a mix of Wellbutrin and provigil along with sitting in front of a 60 inch flat screen. I remember coming to at my friends house and thinking I was in the middle of a dream where I was fighting my friends Dad. Truth was he was making sure I stayed on the ground and got some air (he's a doctor).

The thing with seizures is that most states take your licence away for at least 6 months, some are as long as a year. I was extremely lucky to be in school when it happened rather then being employed in the real world. For a while I had a hard time watching HD TV without getting dizzy. I also use my adderrall for ADD on as needed basis and never take more then 5mg.

Yeah, pretty weird. I'd say there are several possibilities:

1) He was dehydrated from working out. Just got dizzy/lightheaded for a second, and it looked like a seizure. Happens a lot.
2) See #1, that's most likely.
3) Drugs. Always a possibility - had some cocaine/etc on board. (see below article).
4) Alcohol withdrawal seizure. Doubt it, but still.
5) A real seizure disorder from being bashed in the head too many times. Unlikely but possible.

Here's one description of the episode below. After a typical real seizure, you're confused for about 30 minutes, and sometimes bite your tongue/etc. After this one, he was apparently walking around within a minute.

"He was shaking and everything, and he was basically out of it for probably a minute or so, but it seemed longer. After he started coming back everything was pretty much all right. He seemed aware and everything seemed OK after a while. He got up and was walking around.''[/QUOTE]


And this was another episode from 2009 (although back then it was probably partying too hard):

Jeremy Shockey Released After Being Found Unconscious and Rushed to Hospital
by Michael Schottey

TMZ.com is reporting that [B]Jeremy Shockey was found unconscious at around 2 PM while attending a pool party[/B] at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas.

Shockey was covered up by paramedics but was identified to the press by those who found him.

Shockey was removed from the party by stretcher and transported to a local hospital.

Shockey has been a known party animal since his days at the University of Miami and later in New York but he is not in the league's substance abuse program. Details of his condition are not known at this time or if they are substance related.

EDIT @ 8:37 EST Chris Mortensen is reporting that Shockey suffered from a "bout of dehydration" and has been released.

He'd at least have to sit out any games in Dallas.

I'd bet with him it's more likely substances or overworking (was in weight room) rather than epilepsy.
