Does Anyone Feel Like Electricity Is Real And Running Around The Universe?

Does Anyone Feel Like Electricity Is Real And Running Around The Universe?

KarenRita.-Hospital visits are pointless after a seizure cause it's over then!
Electrical activity is a body and brain function in all living things. Human
brains use it to create thought as well. Our conscious mind is from the two hemispheres working together the ability to think and speak as only we can.
Speech, normal thought, gets all screwed up from seizures. Some of the
most famous writers feel they were inspired by this to write in a unique way.
The feeling you're now having after a seizure is from this as well. I get the
same for a while after one weird but i know it's my epilepsy that caused it.
Talk to your Dr. for a med increase but stay away from ER visits-just a
waste of time as you said there's nothing they can do.

KarenRitta:
I'm so very sorry that you've not found the Medication that has helped to reduce
or stop your GrandMALS???
I was lucky enough, after I threw my very first GrandMAL to be put on
TEGRETOL~ 600MG & 45MG DEXEDRINE in 1969.
Have been on TEGRETOL since then & haven't had a GrandMAL in over 44+ YEARS.
Sounds like it maybe time for a new Neurologist who will help you get control
of your Seizures.
Your post is making me really angry in the sense of the word that your doctor
doesn't want to help you find the drug that will help you???
