My family member has MRSA that attached to her spine, e.g. on her bone. She is on Vanco and just had a full seizure. Does anyone know anything about MRSA and seizures? Thanks.

" It's probably impossible for any of us to say whether your family member had a seizure because of the vanco or because of the MRSA. I have a friend who ended up with an abscess in her spine too. I hope that the doctors are able to find out the cause of the seizure and prevent it from happening again. Keep us posted. "

" yeah its possible im thinking not that I know for sure. When I was in the emergancy they told me to keep an eye on my MRSA cause it can easily go to the brain so with that said.........I'm thinking it could cause anything after it gets to the brain. "
