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
The only thing that I haven't had to deal with until maybe mid 2000's I found out I have type 2 diabetes. That and the medication made me get dehydrated quite often. I have always had dealt with stress and Sleep deprived because I was hyperactive and insomnia. So I don't think that did it. But aa the years went by and added medication for diabetes I became more prone to dehydration. I couldn't drink enough water to stay hydrated. The day I had my last seizure after all them years I was so… read more
So far I can drive if I want to even on a medication. I just don't have a car lol. So it's public transit for me and my husband.
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've had seizures for as long as I can remember. I have petit mall and occasionally grand mall. Every MRI and eeg I've done has been normal. I do have heart problem called long qt syndrome so I'm not sure if my seizures are heart related or not. I'm waiting to hear back from my doctor at an epilepsy clinic in Pittsburgh PA
It was a doctor office where I had it done. I'm going to go to a comprehensive epilepsy clinic for testing to see if the seizures are epilepsy or my long qt syndrome or both
This question is mainly for the women who have carried children, but if you can answer this question in anyway please feel free!
My wife and I are talking now about having children, however here in Ontario the epilepsy world is a little behind and maybe outdated.
So my question to all the women is, what medication(s) where some of you on to make carrying your child/children safe? Because my doctors keep telling me it’s not safe and never going to be possible
So I’m… read more
