Rick Ross Says Seizures Were From "Not Getting Enough Rest"? (VIDEO)

The Bawse spoke for the first time about his health scare last week, when he was hospitalized after two serious seizures within hours of each other. Not taking enough naps, though? Not sure what to make of that explanation, though as mentioned in the HuffPo link it's not out of left field to link seizures with lack of sleep (for people with epilepsy):

"Sleep activates the electrical charges in the brain that result in seizures and seizures are timed according to the sleep wake cycle. For some people, seizures occur exclusively during sleep. This is especially true for a particular type of epilepsy known as benign focal epilepsy of childhood, also known as Rolandic epilepsy. When seizures occur during sleep, they may cause awakenings that are sometimes confused with insomnia. Epilepsy patients are often unaware of the seizures that occur while they sleep. They may suffer for years from daytime fatigue and concentration problems without ever knowing why. For people with epilepsy, sleep problems are a double-edged sword; epilepsy disturbs sleep and sleep deprivation aggravates epilepsy."

Whatever they may say for public consumption I hope that behind the scenes Ross and his people are taking this seriously, and putting thought into his health and well-being.
