Has Anyone Heard Of Pseudo Seizures?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

I agree especially with MarKC - thanks for reminding me of ' non epileptic seizures' I've also heard of them being called ' pseudoseizures' too

I had serzuire since I was 2 yrs old and I am 31 yrs old and my son is 10 yrs old just wondering if he would have them or if would get them from me

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

I was wrong in my original comment, you can pass epilepsy through genetics. Although just because you have epilepsy doesn’t necessarily mean that it was passed on through genetics

Side Effects On Certain Food With Your Medicines
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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?

How Do I Remember Things From Class?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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

How Do You Describe Your Condition To Someone Who Does Not Have It?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

When someone asks me, "What does epilepsy feel like?" I describe it as "having an invisible stalker with a TASER" and/or "being controlled by a sadistic puppet master". I also tell people my brain has been "rewired by a drunken technician".

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

Marijuana And Seizures
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Marijuana can help seizures (not in huge amounts in a safe amount) at least I’ve heard I asked my own neurologist and she said it does but not in crazy amounts I personally smoke weed and I’ve found it does help (when it isn’t super bad) if you do yourself what’s your opinion if you don’t still drop your opinion in the comments

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

Nicotine causes them I have to quit which is difficult but I feel like depending on what type of seizures you have depends on how it effects you

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hey everyone
I've been on tegretol/carbamezapine in various doses since I was about 15. I am now 27
I've been starting to think more about side effects, dependency and whatnot as I get older. Does anyone else worry about this? Like what the drugs are doing to your body? I still have seizures roughly once every two weeks, maximum is usually 4 a month, but I have started looking into alternative treatments as well, like acupuncture and the keto diet. My neurologist mentioned to me that if I… read more
