I am 57 with MS. I am mobile but still have some issues such as falling and dizziness. 2 weeks ago I had 3 seizures in 2 days. Have never had 1. Went to neuro and after tests declared my ms has caused epilepsy. Do you spend time alone? I find myself being afraid to be alone.
Keppra is the medication I am on also.
When did you get it?
Diagnosed 1992 I think winter. Oh wait nope summer.
