Kelly Osbourne collapsed while filming her U.S. TV show "Fashion Police" and was taken to a Los Angeles hospital. Since it is the first time Kelly Osbourne has had a seizure it is quite puzzling. The Daily Dish published today that the doctors are trying to figure out why she had the seizure.
The Washington post reports that, “The 28-year-old TV personality posted a photo on Twitter late Thursday of an IV in her tattooed left arm. She thanked her fans for their “beautiful well wishes.”
The Washington Post goes on to say, Osbourne is the daughter of rocker Ozzy Osbourne and “The Talk” co-host Sharon Osbourne. [Kelly] was profiled with her family on the MTV reality series “The Osbournes” and has appeared as a contestant on “Dancing with the Stars.”
According to biography.com, “Kelly launched her own fashion line but was plagued with the memories of her parents fighting and her father’s drug addiction. Her biggest vice was painkillers. At the height of her addiction, she was taking 60 Vicodin tablets a day.”
Biography.com report her as say, "What bugs me the most is that people think I was a party girl and I went around having a great time," Kelly later recalled. "I did drugs because I hated myself and I was miserable, and I didn't want to think about it anymore." Kelly checked herself into rehab. Her life since then has followed a similar path as her father's. She's gone through periods of sobriety and intense work, with periodic struggles with her addictions.”
CBC News Health states that, "Seizure." It's a common term… The simple explanation is that seizures are symptoms of a problem that can happen because of sudden and abnormal electrical activity in the brain. Based on the type of behaviour and the brain activity, seizures fall into two wide-ranging groups. Partial seizures (also known as focal seizures) happen in just one part of the brain. Generalized seizures are a result of abnormal activity on both sides of the brain.
Furthermore, CBC News Health goes on to say that, “Anyone can experience a seizure. Seizures can be caused by a blow to the head, an infection (meningitis, encephalitis), drug or alcohol toxicity, high fever, eclampsia (a condition in pregnant women), missed medication, strokes, heart attacks, complications of kidney disease, diabetes or brain tumors. They can also be the result of seemingly innocuous things like consuming large amounts of fluids or watching flashing lights. Most seizures last from about 30 seconds to two minutes. If they continue for five minutes or more, they are considered a medical emergency.
