Customer Question

I had a stroke about 9 months ago and for the last couple months I started to suffer seizures, doctors have me on levetracetam but knowone has really told me what is causing them other than my stroke, mri shows my left sinus is clogged, I notice my lungs seem to be the same as I can never seem to clear my throat, I wonder if a lack of oxygen in my bblood can be causing the seizures?
