My first EEG came back abnormal. I get seizures daily and now I am taking the 3 day EEG at home. I want to make sure I don't do anything that would give wrong results. Can medication, drinking coffee or moving head cause it to be abnormal? Can the EEG not show my seizure? I want to make sure that this test will show what is happening. Can the test be normal even though the seizures are happenings? I am having so much anxiety about this
I am having the seizures and if this test is not showing… read more

When did you get it?
Diagnosed 1992 I think winter. Oh wait nope summer.
I haven't been on for a while and I'm sure it's already been asked but....
How many of you have had the Covid-19 shots (and which one and why).
Also, my doctor wants me to get Pfizer along with my partner,
but by the time he gets it his work would have started and he won't because he hasn't had the shot.
Again, we can have the Astra in a few days and everything would be alright.
I'm very confused,

I am 100% positive that hormones are playing a huge factor in both the frequency and intensity of my seizures but I’m not sure where to start to address it. If anyone has any suggestions, PLEASE let me know!
I started with seizures just as I was coming out of menopause at 54. I’m going to be 64 in June. All of my family and friends as well as myself think my epilepsy was brought on by a hormonal change. I… read more
I have heard in the past from several friends who have tried many others including surgery, implants or non-medication alternative methods. However, I think it would help if those of you who have to share your experience with those are now at the point where they have been told that medication will never allow them to reach a long-term seizure free state.
