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’ve had epilepsy since the age of 2. I’m now close to 50 yrs. Of age
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
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.

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
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.

When did you get it?
Diagnosed 1992 I think winter. Oh wait nope summer.
If you read my profile I posted what happened to me and how things worked out.
The most important thing to tell you is you may need an adjustment in medication. This may not work for you but it may and you must talk to your doctor about it.
When i was young i failed in school no matter how hard i tried. At about 20 i had a seizure. When i went to the doctor he prescripted Dilantin to me. It made me sick and dizzy every time I took it so I wouldn't take it.
I went to the doctor and… read more
