Flying
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have a tremendous fear of flying and can't take things like Valium for stress, or a couple bevvies like I used to. Most of my seizures are triggered by stress. Should I fly? It's a hell of a long way up to seize..and I live on an island..

How do you act during this time?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

I come in and out on conscience for quite a while. People tell me things, but I forget. Too tired to do any wandering. For me, would not try anything for the next 24 hours.

Does Anyone Else Suffer From The Aura You Get Before A Seizure But Then No Seizure?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I often feel the aura I get before a seizure but then I don't have a seizure. When this happens I take Valium and it helps and most of the time I don't have a seizure. I'm just kind of curious as to whether this happens to anyone else.

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

Most of the time that was it for me. I'd have an aura then I'd start singing or talking and 90% of the time the feeling just went away.

Osteoarthritis
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi 👋 I'm Eve , I'm 52 and I've just been diagnosed with an x-ray with Osteoarthritis. I was always careful with bone density scans on Tegretol . I've developed toxicity in around 2016. I changed my meds to Keppra and didn't get on well with the Anxiety so changed again to Epilim and Lamotrigine. It was roughly 6 months into that that I developed joint pain. I was told it was normal wear and tear and my blood test for inflammation had come back clear. I insisted on further investigation on my… read more
