The L.A. Kings’ hockey team center Jarret Stoll suffered from a seizure that resulted in his being rushed to the hospital on Wednesday morning. The seizure occurred at his home in Hermosa Beach, said the Kings’ General Manager Dean Lombardi.
Lombardi went on to say that some tests were run on Stoll and he had visited Stoll later on Wednesday. Lombardi said that Stoll was taken to Little Company of Mary Hospital in Torrance, which is where Lombardi visited him.
“Everything is OK. They’ve run some tests and they still had another one to run,” Lombardi told The Times. “The bottom line is that he’s fine. Now the issue is what caused it. There are a myriad of things that can cause them.”
Stoll, 31, previously suffered a concussion after he received a hit from San Jose Sharks winger Raffi Torres during the Western Conference semifinal playoffs game. Due to that hit, Stoll had to miss playing in the rest of the season; however, he did return in time to play the first game against Chicago in the conference final. So far, there is no confirmation about whether the concussion was related to the seizure, which can be caused when patients suffer from a traumatic head injury, such as a concussion.
Seizures are a common medical problem suffered by people with epilepsy, which affects millions of people worldwide. Anti-seizure medications are often given to kids and adults with epilepsy. One of those medications is Topamax. Topamax has been linked to an increased risk of suicide and suicidal thoughts as well as birth defects in women whose babies are exposed to the drug in-utero. Some of those birth defects linked to Topamax use during pregnancy include cleft lips, cleft palates, genital defects and other birth malformations.
