I am 100% positive that hormones are playing a huge factor in both the frequency and intensity of my seizures but I’m not sure where to start to address it. If anyone has any suggestions, PLEASE let me know!
I started with seizures just as I was coming out of menopause at 54. I’m going to be 64 in June. All of my family and friends as well as myself think my epilepsy was brought on by a hormonal change. I… read more
In the case of most of us (unless those who suffered brain damage that specifically damage to long-term memory in the inner brain with the hippocampus and memory central command) or are suffering from dementia (easier to get a test now that can show if you have early stages or soon will have do to recent research published earlier this year), then all of your memories (nothing that occurs during a seizure except those seizures like the Simple Partial Seizures that you are completely aware… read more
Hum I wonder if addiction is on that list of side effects? Or the term dependency? I'm just curious. Seems that side effect gets missed sometimes.

If Q + A section was better organized, then I would not have to ask this question, but we have a support site, so we have to do what we can… read more

I went out yesterday purposely and I'm happy again! I can't wait for this weekend! I'm going to finally do open mic again! Last time was 2020 and I blocked him. I spoke a little ruff to him first
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.
