My mother has purchased some, that is being sent to her for me to try. She did this even thou i said i was not interested in it & is pushing me to try it. She told me to do research and find out more about it.
I think I may have just had a seizure while sleeping. I've been known to have nocturnals before but unfortunately my boyfriend was not here to witness it. In my dream, my teeth were chattering, and clenching down really hard. I couldn't wake myself up. And when I did wake up my mouth was extremely sore- teeth and jaw.

When I first got sick I thought if I even had one sip of alcohol it would send me into a seizure. I was wrong. I will have one drink say for my birthday, Christmas, New Year's, etc. Notice the word "one".
I was just wondering if any others of you do… read more
I was on the computer the other day and I felt very disconnected. I had a hard time focusing and getting my thoughts together. After a while I was ok once I got off of the computer. I wonder if this is a small seizure or not.
Does anyone have both? Or see any other connection between the two as a cause or side effect of meds
