Personality Changes In Spouse After He Began Having Seizures

My husband suddenly started having grand mal seizures about 6 years ago completely out of the blue and was diagnosed with epilepsy about 6 months after his first cluster of seizures. He was young (27) fit and healthy and strong as he is a farmer, since the epilepsy began he has changed in almost every way... can anyone else relate?

I started having seizures January 2019 and was so depressed. I came to terms with this. My family have been very supportive. This takes some time to get used to for everybody.

Hi Everyone, I’ve Got A Question About Memory Loss

Hi Everyone, I’ve Got A Question About Memory Loss

I know seizures can impact memory loss. But I’m on Levetiracetam Keppra and I’m wondering if anyone else feels like this medication has impacted their day to day memory? I feel like I might have short term memory loss. I might just be over thinking it but I thought I’d ask on here incase anyone can relate?

All the best x

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

Yes, Keppra and every other AED meds, has side effects of memory struggles. Adding our seizures along with the meds, can make it challenging.

Auras With Epilepsy

Auras With Epilepsy

My 9 year old son was recently diagnosed with epilepsy. He’s dealt with migraines with aura since he was 4 and been on daily migraine meds since then. They have never worked for him. He has gotten an aura/migraine every 10 days to two weeks. He had his first seizure at school last March. His neurologist gave us rescue meds and we hoped it was a one time thing. Unfortunately in August he had his second seizure that lasted so long we had to call 911.

My question is
