Hello! Please remember that my response is for information only, we are not establishing a therapeutic relationship.
It sounds like your stress
is triggering seizures, but these are not "manic episodes" (manic episodes are something different entirely).
Here's how stress can trigger seizures:
1. Under extreme stress, the hormone cortisol is released, which may influence seizure activity in some people.
2. The limbic system of the brain regulates emotion. It's a common place for seizures to begin, and negative emotions such as fright/worry can trigger seizures in some people who are prone to them.
I think you should tell your doctor right away about your recent seizure and have your medical plan re-evaluated.
You should also seek treatment for your PTSD and get support for your current stressful situation.
You can find a Psychologist who specializes in PTSD at one of the following websites:
