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
When did you get it?
Diagnosed 1992 I think winter. Oh wait nope summer.
I have Tonic-Clonic seizures every 2 weeks. I'm 51 and have been having them for 10 years now.
I started microdosing 3/10s of a gram and I still had my seizure every 2 weeks, but I went 4 months without a Tonic-Clonic seizure. https://www.magicmushrooms101.com

No need to apologize. Tell your neurologist's about the depression side effect of that medication

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.

@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
It doesn't matter how much I try paying attention to the conversation. I couldn't tell you everything word for word even if it's just happened. It's like it goes in one ear and out the other. Like following instructions if I've been given 3/4 things to do if I've not written down I would be able to remember 3 & 4 but not 1 & 2
@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member I am sorry to hear that your family reacts that way. However, you have friends on here, and we can reassure you that you are normal. Epilepsy/Seizure Disorder doesn't make… read more
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
I was wondering ,does your neurologist do follow up MRI?if so what's the frequency?
It's been 2 years since my last MRI and I would like to know if my Archonoid cyst has grown during that time as my symptoms have progressively gotten worse and I still have concerns That it may be the cause of my symptoms amongst other reasons.
MRI will depend on your Doctor. And what information he/she is looking for. A lot of times for myself , my Epileptologist would schedule me a MRI appt., followed by a EEG or the Other way around. Then… read more
