Have Epilepsy ? DO NOT Sleep on your Stomach !

  Epilepsy is associated with an increased risk of sudden death. In a review of the literature, researchers found that 73% of deaths in these individuals occurred while sleeping on their stomachs. Further, in a subgroup, epileptics younger than 40 were 40 times more likely to be found on their stomach at the time of death.
