Lil Wayne hospitalised for another seizure

Lil Wayne

Rapper Lil Wayne suffered yet another seizure Tuesday night, but was treated and subsequently released from hospital Wednesday morning.

The 30-year-old epileptic rapper has endured a series of uncontrollable convulsions within the past few months.

On March 12 he was taken to a Los Angeles hospital for an episode where he stayed in the Intensive Care Unit for six days.

TMZ reports Wayne once again sought treatment for the condition at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles Tuesday night.

Apparently it was a single seizure and following medical care the star was released early Wednesday morning.

The hip-hop star previously opened up about his lifelong battle with epilepsy.

He was diagnosed with the disease in his childhood.

“[I’m] prone to seizures,” he told Power 106's DJ Felli Fel recently. “This wasn't my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh... I have had a bunch of seizures, you just never hear about them.

“But this time it got real bad 'cause I had three of them in a row and on the third one, my heart rate went down to like 30 per cent. Basically, I could've died.”

Wayne explained his whole team is aware of his problem and he is surrounded by people who know what to do should he become unwell.

Rebelling against outmoded conventions is liberating. Usually, you're comfortable with tradition. In this situation, you realise the old ways are a liability. Stuffy rules and regulations are stopping a large amount of people from accessing resources and services. It's up to you to sound the alarm. When the powers that be realise you mean business, they'll work hard to update the regulations. You'll make several new friends after getting involved with this cause.More
