When I first heard the story, I immediately fact-checked it. None of the places I checked reported hearing the story, but I am not convinced the story is true. What do you think?
A medical journal reported that solving a Sudoku puzzle caused a student to have seizures. The student has been seizure free for five years simply by not attempting to solve Sudoku puzzles.
I don’t know all the facts of this unusual case, and I am not a doctor, but I question whether or not the student was predisposed to play Sudoku when he somehow sensed he was about to have a seizure. I am also curious if being seizure free has nothing to do with the decision not to play Sudoku and is the result of anti-seizure medication the student is taking.
Thanks to Google for helping find the story; and all the other people who, directly or indirectly, made it possible to include the picture and text in this post.
