Hello, Anon! Thank you for posting.

We cannot diagnose anything, but we can give you some general information.

A seizure is a sudden surge of electrical activity in the brain. Seizures are not a disease in themselves. Instead, they are a symptom of many different disorders that can affect the brain. It may take several tests for your doctor to determine the cause of your seizures.

White matter disease is a disease that affects the nerves that link various parts of the brain to each other and to the spinal cord. These nerves are also called white matter. White matter disease causes these areas to decline in their functionality. This disease is also referred to as leukoaraiosis. Your doctor can make a diagnosis of white matter disease by discussing your symptoms with you and using imaging tests. Many people with white matter disease go to their doctor complaining of balance problems initially.

We don't know what medication you are taking and why. Speak to your doctor or pharmacist. Some medications cause sun sensitivity.
