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 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 had more seizures in my 40's than any other time except my teens. The seizures I had in peri menapause were also more severe, causing a loss of memory and balance. It took weeks to get over each… read more

As someone who was once labeled as not likely to ever reach a long-term seizure free state (and have… read more
When did you get it?
Got that degree in 2012.
I haven't been on for a while and I'm sure it's already been asked but....
How many of you have had the Covid-19 shots (and which one and why).
Also, my doctor wants me to get Pfizer along with my partner,
but by the time he gets it his work would have started and he won't because he hasn't had the shot.
Again, we can have the Astra in a few days and everything would be alright.
I'm very confused,
I am alright I had the Oxford Astra zenica an I am perfectly alright they are saying for the booster we might get the one the doctors are asking you to have they have studied having them mixed first… read more

Since my last seizure, I find my attention span is much shorter, especially when reading. Anyone else experience this?
I have heard in the past from several friends who have tried many others including surgery, implants or non-medication alternative methods. However, I think it would help if those of you who have to share your experience with those are now at the point where they have been told that medication will never allow them to reach a long-term seizure free state.
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
@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member Everyone gets nervous. Usually what helps is if you talk to your epileptologist/surgeon. From the surgeon, I learned there was a better chance of dying from a car accident… read more
I was wondering when you seek a second or third opinion from a doctor do you tell ,share include all your diagnosis from previous doctors, neurologist .
Should that information be included?
would those previous diagnosis or medical opinions affect the opinion of the new doctor your seeing?
That's what my concern is really is that they will just agree with previous diagnosis.
I have a neurologist of whom I am not fond. However, she is in practice with a man I do like. Is there a gracious way to say I would prefer to see this doctor?
