Does Anyone Else Get Sudden Chills And A Sudden Body Jerk Occasionally?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question πŸ’­

Has anyone else ever experienced sudden chills that cause your body to jerk every so often? It's a bit hard to describe, but throughout my life, I've had these chills occur from time to time. They can happen when I'm cold, but not exclusively. Typically, I'll get goosebumps, and then my body will make a sudden jerk before returning to normal.

I was diagnosed with epilepsy when I was 22 months old, but since starting Keppra in Kindergarten, I have not experienced any seizures. There was a single… read more

Health Insurance

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question πŸ’­

What is the best company to get health insurance with? I turn 26 in April and will no longer be able to get my medicine through my mother's insurance. I take name brand Keppra and cannot afford to pay for it outright. However, it is the only thing that has ever helped, I tried switching to generic when I was younger and ended up having a seizure after being seizure free for five years. I've been back on name brand ever since then and have been seizure free now for 13 years. If anybody could give… read more

I took Keppra XR. Insurance changed it generic and seizures increased. I had to get prior authorizations. Dr stated it has to be name brand due to the ineffectiveness of the generic. But I was… read more

Musicogenic Epilepsy

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question πŸ’­

Does anyone else have this form of epilepsy? I'm starting to feel like a test case and it hasn't even been 1.5 years since my epilepsy diagnosis. I started with focal seizures, after tests was determined to also have autoimmune epilepsy and now we are testing for musicogenic epilepsy since 8 out of my last 10 seizures I have been around music. We tested it when I had an EEG and I couldn't make it through a full song without having a seizure.

Does Loud Noices Or Music Make Any Of You Have Sezuires And High Aniexty?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question πŸ’­

Hello everyone, I was just wondering do any of you have sezuires from loud music in a closed area like my self. Also do you have high anxiety from noice that is unusually louder than usual. I recntly in the last couple of years picked up on this. When someone yells at me in anger sezuires happen no doubt. I ran off one time and hit my head on the wall during a complex partial and dont remember anything. Just woke up with a knot on my head and a bad headache. Can any of you relate?
