I've had a bunch of seizures, y'all just never hear about them. ... Basically, I could've died, so that is why it was so serious. But the reason being for the seizures is just plain stress, no rest, overworking myself."

"No warning, no nothing, I don't feel sick. I get headaches real bad. And the headaches? I didn't get no headaches or nothing," "I go to sleep and wake up in the hospital. I don't feel anything. I just hope it stops happening." Revealed, Lil Wayne about his ongoing struggle with epilepsy in an interview with MTV's RapFix Live.
