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
How many people still manage to still work full time and have breakthrough seizures?

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?

Someone on here mentioned wanting to locate old friends.
Have you tried Facebook or other social media sites?
My high school class has established such a site.
Through Facebook I was able to reestablish contact with the "boy" who used to live down the street
from me. I also re-met a cousin I hadn't seen since we were both 6 years old.
Give it a try. It's nice to contact old friends. (In my case really old LOL)
The best of luck to you. ❤️
35 years? Wow! That's wonderful.
When did you get it?
Got that degree in 2012.

I have noticed that a lot of stories say that epilepsy was diagnosed when you have been in your late teens or early 20s but has anyone been diagnosed in their late 30s or early 40s?
I was 68 when i started to have ‘funny turns’. 4 years of testing followed without a diagnosis. At 72 I had a massive tonic clonic convulsive seizure which I’m told lasted 25 minutes. At last they had… read more
