I'm considering having an operation to remove a temporal lobe lesion. I'm told there's a risk that it could handicap speech or language, and it doesn't always remove all seizures (if any at all). Did surgery cause you any kind of problem that makes you regret surgery?
I’m looking for a seizure app that works with the Apple Watch to help monitor my son’s seizures and alert me when he is having one or if there is a camera that is affordable that can monitor his seizures at night and alert me when he is having one. Any suggestions?
For the past few months, I have experienced a case of tinnitus, or ringing in the ears. Although it is not actually a ringing. More like the static you hear when your television goes out. Sometimes it interferes with my hearing or listening. At night it drives me crazy.
It was actually a few weeks ago. I didn't know it was a seizure till I talked to my neurologist. I felt that dizzy, out of it feeling like I feel after having a seizure but was able to continue with what I was doing. No visible seizure to anyone around me. I wasn't around anyone when the feeling first started but was afterward. And no feeling of my body moving or anything like I have in seizures.
It was just a sudden feeling of being dizzy and feeling like I had a seizure.

My one hour Eeg showed sharp waves over bilateral frontal lobes, more dominant on the left.
My ambulatory Eeg said that it could not rule out partial seizures but read as follows.
" intermittent and elipitform spike and sharp waves were noted in the bilateral frontal regions,more on the left. Intermittent runs of sharply contoured theta waves centropartietal head region, more on the left."
Goes on to talk about focal cortical irritability and epilipic potiential. And the clincial significance… read more
I have a two year old son who was diagnosed with seizures 4 months after I had him. After two years of dealing with doctors they finally diagnosed the type of seizure he has about 3 months ago. My son has cortical dysplasia type 2. The left side of his brain has abnormalities and the cells didnt develop properly. He is very smart and has met all this milestones for his age. He does take a medication for it. He struggles everyday with this and we can't get any help. We've had test after test done… read more
