Lil Wayne reveals that his seizures are as much as a surprise to him as they are to his fans. He sat down with MTV news on Wednesday to discuss the now frequent instances of his seizures.
“I go to sleep and wake up in the hospital,” he told MTV News. “No warning, not nothing. I don’t feel sick.” Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, revealed that he suffers from epilepsy and extreme headaches, but that his epileptic seizures happen without any symptoms. “I don’t feel anything,” he said. “I just hope it stops happening.”
Lil Wayne has been in and out of the hospital in recent weeks, in some cases spending days in the ICU for his seizures. In April, the rapper revealed on a radio interview that he suffers from the epilepsy, and has since he was a child. “I’m epileptic, so I’m prone to seizures,” he admitted. “I’ve had a bunch of seizures. Y’all just never hear about it. This time it got real bad because I got three of em in a row, and on the third one, my hear rate went down, to like, 30%. ”
The rapper stated that stress and overworking was the cause of his episodes. He recently released “I am Not a Human Being Part 2” and plans tour this summer.
