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
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
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
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

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?
It all depends on how long the EEGV is . For one day, they won’t do a thing with meds.
From 4 - 7 days they will decrease your meds little bit at a time everyday
They want to try and get as big of… read more
I have days where I have to really fight to stay awake. It's next to impossible to keep my eyes open.
I've been tested for a lot of things; but so far no answers.
Yesterday I underwent a Doppler ultrasound of my carotid arteries. (I'll have to wait several days for the results.)
Has anyone else experienced such sleepiness?
🤒Oh no! Francis,
You're right to seek further help. My doctors have told me that antibiotics usually have done their most work after 5 days.
Please keep us posted. ❤️
I am going for a 24 hour scan next week and I want to see if it will show me blanking out and being restless as the normal eeg shows my seizures but not to an extend on how long and so forth. Is this scan worth my while?
I had those tests plus a digitrace for when your being at home

I have reached a point where trying to work is no longer an option for me. The whole process of applying for disability seems very overwhelming. I did get through the initial application so now I am waiting to see what is next. I was told I may be sent to some specific doctors chosen by the Social Security Administration. I am not currently on any medication because everything I have tried to date makes me sick and my regular doctor said I am "medication resistant". I would just like to have… read more
I did that. They all gave reasons why I cant work also
