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
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
How many people still manage to still work full time and have breakthrough seizures?
I worked 6 days a week 50/hrs wk. for 35 years. I had worked in a lumberyard. I started working outside making houseloads of lumber. Very physical labor. I moved into customer service, less physical… read more
I’m really happy that Tampa Bay Bucs made it. They’re playing home against Dallas Cowboys Monday night!
I wish I could say something but my husband is a football official (he is an umpire). Both he and. I would be in so much trouble if it was found that he made a prejudiced statement. So enjoy the… read more
Do you guys drive?
Losing the right or ability to drive is not only hard it just down right sucks! It is a means to independence. I haven’t driven in almost 9 years and I hate every minute. Having said that I look at… read more
I was told I have Grand Mal and other Seizure Disorders one of them called Pseudoseizures . Anyone else ever hear of this? I'm told it's hard to diagnose and often gone undiagnosed or is missed. My family and I was just grasping the Grand Mal Seizures now there's more to try and sort thru?
I agree especially with MarKC - thanks for reminding me of ' non epileptic seizures' I've also heard of them being called ' pseudoseizures' too
What do you do to remember to take meds when you take more than once a day!
And my phone scares the heck out of me all the time with reminders
So I'm going back to college. I start on August 11th. Here's my deal though. I've been in and out of college since I graduated in 2009 because of Epilepsy problems. I've gone to college three other times already. Also for three different things. Should have stayed with the same track I know but I'm indecisive and I get bored easily. First time I was at the community college, I was there for my AA but I had just found out that I had Epilepsy. My GPA started dropping near the end of a year and a… read more

Has anyone had side effects with certain foods, with your medications. Cause ever since I started taken lamitical I cant eat any of the spanish beans I used eat. Which is weird. It used to be fine when I ate spanish beans with rice but ever since I started taken lamitical for my seizures is that a side effect or no?
I'm on that but I'm just getting immune to every medicine 😢 I wouldn't take Felbamate
Something some said got to me. Not all forms of epilepsy make tou loose consciensness. I am always alart and and aware of several of my triggers. My sezuires are either absent, mind staring or simple/conplex jerks (like a cold chill).
I have complex partial seizures. My neurologist and I have talked about my license as I have brought it up. He sees no reason to revoke my license and my diagnosis does not require them to be.
Anyone else still have their license?
I still have mine but I'm not allowed to drive for 6 months after I've had a sz. Just had a major one that sent me to the hospital and required stitches above my right eye.
