Will epilepsy watches like embrace and epilert work for secondary generalized seizures
I do know someone had wristband on and they were just tying their shoelaces and the wristband told them they were having a seizure. It sounds like any wristband can't tell the difference between… read more
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
just wondering what yalls state laws are for driving aftwr a seizure. every time i have one, i have to wait 6 months to drive, which sucks but could be worse. i was just wondering if yall had similar laws, or for those of you who have multiple seizures, what do yall do about driving?
In south Africa you aren't allowed a license if you've been diagnosed with epilepsy. You have to be seizure free for 2 years before you are allowed to apply for a license. Personally I have a lot of… read more
Hello! I could not find any answers to this topic. Do you all find that you generally need more sleep than others? I know everyone is different, but I find that I usually need 8+hours of sleep daily. I am very diligent about getting enough sleep as that is one of my main triggers. On the weekends, I can easily sleep for 9+ hours. Is anyone else like this?
I would say yes, I’m the same way in that I need about 8 hours on a regular schedule in order to function normally, and without it I’ve been more prone to seizures. But I purposely plan and keep to… 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
i want to know as much as possiable about it they r talking about doin this on my daughter
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

Im going on a trip soon thats a 17 hr time difference ahead of where i normally live. Ive gone through 2 hr time differences at most. Has anybody gone on far distanced trips? How did that go with the seizures? Was it harder goinng to your travel destinatiom or bacck home after? Any advice to hopefully help make if slightly easier with managing the seizures?
I have travelled to Europe from NY, that’s a 6 hour difference; 17 hours is a whole other story.
The advice I would give is to adjust your meds according to your usual time intervals, and not just… read more
