What Treatment For Epilepsy? I've Been On 6 Different Meds.
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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

I have right temporal lobe (lesions on the right side)epilepsy and I'm currently on Vimpat. Anybody out there have vivid or weird dreams? Some of mine are extremely life like and some are weird enough that I probably would tell them to anybody. Some of them stick in my memory even when I wish they wouldn't.

Video EEG
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have to a video eeg done. I have watched some YouTube videos, but still have questions. Will they just stop all my medications as soon as i am in the hospital? Or what?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

It all depends on how long the EEGV is . For one day, they won’t do a thing with meds.

From 4 - 7 days they will decrease your meds little bit at a time everyday
They want to try and get as big of… read more

Status Epilepticus
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

My 5 year old daughter was diagnosed with epilepsy last year. She's been having seizures every 1-2 months since then. But when she has a seizure, it never stops on its own. Every time, she has to go to the hospital and receive diazepam injection. Is there any other person with similar conditions? Will it get worse with time? I'm so worried.

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

I've never dealt with a kid with epilepsy just myself. See if her doctor would give you a concentrate (liquid) RX of diazapam or lorazapam and educate you on the dosages for her seizures. It can go… read more

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Does anyone manufacture a watch to alert to seizures, heart problems, etc.
I only have two skinny wrists, so I don't have a lot of room for multiple watches.😁

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

My phone doesn't automatically call 911. It sent a picture to certain contacts. When I had a heart attack & my daughter called 911 from Michigan I tried to convince EMTs all I needed was a… read more

If Your Seizures Are Under Control, Do Your Side Effects (either From Seizures Or Meds) Come And Go?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

As far as I know, I haven't had a seizure in over a year. It took me 11 months to feel like myself again after the last one. Then I had 3 months of feeling really good. Now all of a sudden the side effects (brain fog, memory, exhaustion, depression, word recall, etc.) are back. I'm trying hard not to feel like I'm backtracking and to view it as all part of the package. For those of you whose seizures are under control, do your side effects come and go?

Has Anyone Heard Of Pseudo Seizures?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

I agree especially with MarKC - thanks for reminding me of ' non epileptic seizures' I've also heard of them being called ' pseudoseizures' too
