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

I’ve had epilepsy since the age of 2. I’m now close to 50 yrs. Of age
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
The past year ive been thinking of doing it. Im glad to hear it has sone kind of a positive affect and hope it gets even better for you 😊
I submitted a reasonable accommodation request on 10/18/22 asking that my job give me 12 hours off of work, specifically during the hours of 7pm to 7am, due to the fact that I must wake up at 6am to get my children ready for school. Also to see to it that I may get enough sleep, because the recommended amount of sleep for someone with my disability is 8-10 hours of continuous sleep per night. My boss agreed to accommodate my request for one week only: 10/31-11/05/22, even though I… read more
Easier said than done. But you deserve better than them!!!!
Naomi Love the way you can handle seizures within your mind. The smart way- you just deal with them if or when they occur. Once we know the reality our mind can relax a bit not get upset or down… 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
During a pleasant, perfect late spring bike ride in 2011 (I've biked regularly since age 25) on a great well-known trail, my vision suddenly turned weird. All the beautiful colors of late spring turned suddenly to only 2 colors - red and gold. It stayed that way for about 10 minutes as I slowly biked along the trail. Normal vision then returned. In subsequent weeks other events occurred. I lost the ability to speak properly for 1-2 minutes and the ability to write down simple words in English. I… read more
I was classified as "reason unknown" for 55 years, until I started with a new neurologist (one in Boston rather that Southeastern Massachusetts), and I had my first of all of these: 2 brain MRIs, Pet… 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
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.
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
