My wife, after being seizure-free for a year-and-a-half, has now had 10 in 11 days. This all started 8 days after she received both the H1N1 vaccine and a pneumonia vaccine on the same day.

Is it possible that either of these shots, or the combination of both, could be the cause of her recent "flurry" of seizures?

Neither pneumonia nor H1N1 are known for causing seizure activity.

CLARIFICATION: Are you saying that the DISEASES H1N1/pneumonia are not known for causing seizure activity (or lowering the threshold for having a seizure), or are you saying that the VACCINES for H1N1/pneumonia are not known for such? Very different situations; my wife had the VACCINES, not the DISEASES.
