I am 57 with MS. I am mobile but still have some issues such as falling and dizziness. 2 weeks ago I had 3 seizures in 2 days. Have never had 1. Went to neuro and after tests declared my ms has caused epilepsy. Do you spend time alone? I find myself being afraid to be alone.
Keppra is the medication I am on also.
Hi everyone. I am Robbie, going to be 57 on August 1 and have had seizures since 11 years old. I take Carbatrol, Keppra and Lamictal for my seizures and also have had VNS since the early 90's.

Now all of a sudden the side effects (brain fog, memory, exhaustion, depression, word recall, etc.) are back. I'm trying hard not to feel like I'm backtracking and to view it as all part of the package. For those of you whose seizures are under control, do your side effects come and go?
No need to apologize. Tell your neurologist's about the depression side effect of that medication
As someone who was once labeled as not likely to ever reach a long-term seizure free state (and have… read more
I went out yesterday purposely and I'm happy again! I can't wait for this weekend! I'm going to finally do open mic again! Last time was 2020 and I blocked him. I spoke a little ruff to him first

I have a very bad short term memory but a good long term memory
