USA Today

Christie Bowen awoke early one morning and couldn’t figure out how to walk or get dressed. She began having seizures as her husband helped her downstairs so they could drive to a hospital near their Windsor, Vt., home.

She went by ambulance to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, a half-hour away in Lebanon, N.H., where a neurologist quickly diagnosed her.
