Lil Wayne an epileptic

Lil Wayne says he’s an epileptic and has had seizures for years. In an interview with LA-based radio station Power 106 on Thursday, the 30-year-old rapper said epilepsy caused a health scare earlier this month when he was rushed to a hospital. Wayne said he had three back-to-back seizures. The Grammy winner says: ‘‘I’ve had a bunch of seizures, y’all just never hear about them.’’ Wayne says he ‘‘could’ve died’’ and that the recent seizures were a result of ‘‘just plain stress, no rest, overworking myself.’’
