Every couple of years I have seizures then my Dr wants to try something new or ups the dosage. The meds I'm on now are making me dizzy and off balance
I have days where I have to really fight to stay awake. It's next to impossible to keep my eyes open.
I've been tested for a lot of things; but so far no answers.
Yesterday I underwent a Doppler ultrasound of my carotid arteries. (I'll have to wait several days for the results.)
Has anyone else experienced such sleepiness?
Sometimes I sleep well at night. Other times ( like last night)
I don’t sleep at all. It varies.
I'm just wondering because I've noticed that as I'm getting older my seizures first came back and with increased activity
I was diagnosed at 7. They called them Petit Mal back then. I had taken a huge number of medications, dosages and combinations. In my early 20s I had taken all then known AEDs. After a lot of tests, I… read more
I have to a video eeg done. I have watched some YouTube videos, but still have questions. Will they just stop all my medications as soon as i am in the hospital? Or what?

From 4 - 7 days they will decrease your meds little bit at a time everyday
They want to try and get as big of… read more
My son is set to have left temporal lobectomy on September 28 2018. I am wanting to talk to people who have had this done and your experiences. We are very nervous.
I was recently diagnosed with epilepsy after having a rather unexpected and intense grand-mal seizure. I was alone and out of it for at least three days, and I think that my dog probably saved my life. She is 2.5 years old, already well trained (knows pretty much every basic command I could think of when she was growing up and can even walk next to me outside without a leash), and has the temperament appropriate for a service animal. I've been looking into how to train her and have her… read more
All a business can ask is if it’s a service animal and what task. All you have to say is service dog and attends to my condition. It has to be housebroken, on a leash, not petted by others, and obey… read more

Ive had epilepsy since i was born on my 18th birthday my brother stressed me out so much the doctor said i "unlocked" my stress seziures. They are nonelectrical so they couldn't pick anything up on sleep study.
Steve, right now you are in the midst of intense spiritual warfare. What adds to the problem is the negative side effects of the medications that you are taking, and MD's not believing what you try… read more
Will it set off with excessive motion.
I have heard of this but I am afraid to shell out the money only ro have it not work. I'm waiting for it to be out a little longer so I can hear how well it works. If it works well, I would be more… read more
