Will epilepsy watches like embrace and epilert work for secondary generalized seizures
I do know someone had wristband on and they were just tying their shoelaces and the wristband told them they were having a seizure. It sounds like any wristband can't tell the difference between… read more
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
When did you get it?
Diagnosed 1992 I think winter. Oh wait nope summer.
In the case of most of us (unless those who suffered brain damage that specifically damage to long-term memory in the inner brain with the hippocampus and memory central command) or are suffering from dementia (easier to get a test now that can show if you have early stages or soon will have do to recent research published earlier this year), then all of your memories (nothing that occurs during a seizure except those seizures like the Simple Partial Seizures that you are completely aware… read more
Ahh ok I was just wondering. Thank you Marilee.
So after reading I've read many say they were out or doing something they had a siezure and kept doing what they were doing. Other than now knowing that aoras don't think I'm spelling correctly, are a siezure I guess..... If not what does everyone mean? They weren't flopping on the floor..... I now that's not the only type but I'm still confused.
Thanks for helping me try to understand. I figure asking here directly would help me more than a million things on the G search engine
Thanks… read more
An aura is a seizure that doesn’t involve the same kind of muscle movement that a grand mal does. I can only speak from my own experiences of them, but they often involve more changes and difficulties… read more
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 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.
If Q + A section was better organized, then I would not have to ask this question, but we have a support site, so we have to do what we can… read more
@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member Everyone gets nervous. Usually what helps is if you talk to your epileptologist/surgeon. From the surgeon, I learned there was a better chance of dying from a car accident… read more
Hi all. My son recently started seizing (grand mal) again after 4 years of being seizure free. I’m looking to buy him a seizure alert device but wanted to know if anyone has any experience with them. I’m currently looking at My Medic Watch App which connects to a smartphone or the Embrace 2 Watch. Are there any other options out there? Your insight is much appreciated.
Hi Becky. My son started having absent seizures when he was 7. At age 15 he suffered from his first grand mal (this happened after his father’s funeral. He died from congestive heart failure)… read more
i want to know as much as possiable about it they r talking about doin this on my daughter
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
