Is vaping causing people to have seizures?

The Food and Drug Administration says it has received 127 reports of seizures or other neurological symptoms, like fainting or tremors, that are possibly related to e-cigarettes.

Experts haven't established a direct link yet, but they are trying to figure out if the nicotine in the electronic cigarettes are causing the seizures.

The agency is asking for feedback from the public, and encouraged people to report if they had seizures after vaping.
