I am going to be a police reserve at my local department. Part of the training is taser certification. One problem: I have a seizure disorder! Can being tased give me a seizure?

Don't know if it will cause you to have a seizure but here's what it did for me......I have an ankle injury that hurts constantly (injury from the academy). On qual day I took the full 5 and POOF! No ankle pain for the rest of the day. Cool huh? Consult your doctor as far as the seizure disorder goes. In my S.O. we are not required to ride in order to be qualified to carry the X26..........but I like pain so there you go.


You can't cure stupid.

Masochistic tendencies?  Dang, that is funny.  But as for the subject matter, I must agree with the others and recommend that you ask your doctor.

You might also contact Taser corporation with this question, they have done a lot of medical research on the effects of tasers.
