Sorry, I should have been clear, HW was heartworm, Sentinel to be exact. My dog wasn't fly biting though, but rather shaking his head side to side for periods of about 1-5 minutes. They were diagnosed as focal seizures by a veterinary neurologist, and became less and less frequent until stopping completely once we stopped giving Sentinel. We had given it in previous years without problems, and I believe the seizures didn't start till the 2nd dose of that year.

You might want to look up possible side effects of the flea and heartworm meds you gave, just incase. The vet I initially saw didn't want to believe it could be the Sentinel at all, but after seeing 3 vets and finding no other cause what so ever, it became pretty clear that it was the meds causing the problem.
