He may of had a a SUDEP ( sudden unexplained death in epilepsy ) . The best thing is to talk to a specialist in this area
Earlier today, a rain storm came through. Maybe a minute before this, something happened, rather not discuss it. Thought about brain tumors and intracranial pressure. When the barometer drops, ICP is higher than the pressure outside of the head. Had brain surgery, and brain tumors have the same effect- the tumor presses on the brain. Any experiences with sudden changes in air pressure?
Me too. Exactly my experience, every word. Even what my neurologist said to me this morning, exactly word for word. He said he had deep experience with epilepsy for many years and never heard of air… read more
Not being believed is worse than a seizure. I hope your days are sunny and peaceful.
My neurologist wants to put me on EPIDIOLEX. Does anybody have any experience with this medication. I would love to hear your reviews and experiences. Good or bad.

My wife is living with epilepsy and I am so scared to death of losing her. I would like to know if there is anything we could do, or is it something that's inevitable?
I would say when for some reason the seizures can not be controlled, no matter what they do
i have had epilepsy since 4 and i was recently diagnosed with temporal lobe epilepsy and my epilepsy specialist said that surgery might be a good option but i also have other types of epilepsy so i dont know if my other types would be affected not only that but i have a traumatic brain injury and acute encophalophaly
I don’t blame You!
I've been involved in natural/herbal/Eastern medicine for epilepsy (and other issues) for 29 years after giving "modern medicine" 41 out of 48 years of my life with hardly any benefit and more side effects than I could take anymore. It was out of desperation that I tried the "snake oil" (as 99.9% of the medical community still refers to it as) approach, and let me tell you, it was the BEST thing I ever did for myself! Within less than 2 weeks I noticed a HUGE improvement in my seizures taking… read more
Use nothing but. After doctor did me wrong
What is the difference between an aura and a petit seizure. When I have an aura in which can last for hours I feel like a riot is going on inside me. People have told me to say something. I don't always have a seizure. I don't want to be the boy that cried wolf all the time.
Thank you everyone for your patience with me. I am new on this on line and I don't know what I'm doing all the time.
Hope and pray everyone has a great day.
Has anyone herd of a infant of 14 days old start with seizures and they were so severe they damaged the brain and at 29 days Sally Lynn died. The seizures were resistant to Pentobarbitol, phenobarbital, Kepra, kedamine, fentonal, and Topamax. She was on all of these at one time and finally they were putting in a new arterial line and she died 1.5 hours later. Has anyone herd of this?
I am sorry but don’t give up hope on getting a answer to your questions. You are in my prayers and I hope you get those answers
