I was diagnosed with epilepsy, what now? Can I practice sports? Which physical activities are most adequate for people with this chronic condition? And should I, or should I not, tell the gym I have epilepsy? This and so many other questions wander the mind of someone who was just diagnosed with epilepsy. It’s natural it happens, after all this is a new and unknown situation for someone who’s experiencing for the first time the diagnosis of a chronic pathology.
