Does Anyone Else Get Sudden Chills And A Sudden Body Jerk Occasionally?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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.

Health Insurance
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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

Does Loud Noices Or Music Make Any Of You Have Sezuires And High Aniexty?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

Sometimes it can cosmic to have a seizure act from loud noise but not all the time. It all depends on the person & how bad the seizures are.

Medical Alert System?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I been thinking about getting an alert system since im home alone. My service dog can be trained to press the button if i have a seizure and need help. He alerts to some seizures and barks if im down longer than 5min or goes and find the nearest person
Problem is my family has lack of communication skills. They ignore my service dog when he is trying to tell them something! Going back to me having no support at home. My question i guess is... if i can't get them to listen to me or my service… read more
