Has anyone tried cannabis or cbd oils? I have started smoking pot about a few months back and noticed less activity. Pros and cons?
I was using oil and large doses. Had 9 seizures before I got to the hospital. What they injected worked
I have been having issues for about 3 weeks where my threshold seems lower, and my left arm and right leg seem to be weaker. When I fall asleep my right leg feels like it want's to go into a seizure, I find an ice pack sooths the feeling but of course gives me anxiety when trying to sleep.
Has anyone experienced this, particularly when staying up later or using Marijuana?
Have you contacted your neurologist? I only can take tylenol. Try even stretching thats what I do.

My doctor suggested I get a dog to keep me company since I’m home alone most of the time , I walk him twice a day and he sticks to me like glue especially when I’m in seizure mode he will sit and stay on my lap on the couch and won’t let me leave the couch . So I understand now when he sticks to me oddly he understands me better than anyone else
I use a CPAP machine to help ensure I get enough oxygen to my brain whilst sleeping
So based on my auras and seizure activity, my doctor is pretty sure of where my seizures are occurring? Tricky part, is my MRI and scalp eeg came out clean, suggesting that my seizures are occurring deep in the brain that an MRI and scalp egg can't pick up. One of the ways to confirm the theory is to do an seeg where you go under general anesthesia, drill tiny holes in your head and stick wires right on top of the brain and stay in the hospital to record seizure activity. I've done video egg… read more
Actually, back in 2021 on a day that my sister and I had to rush our mom (now almost 85 years-old), I experienced for possibly the first time (I have no memories of most days in June 2003) a wave of… read more
My seizures last about 5 minutes (or less), although the seizure stops I still remain unconscious for long (anything between 10-40 minutes), should someone seek medical assistance or is it best to just to just wait it out. My neurologist says there is nothing they can do so best just to wait. It’s a terrible feeling and it’s a struggle to regain consciousness, move my limbs and open my eyes. I just want a second opinion to set my husband at ease when it happens.
I've been on Lacosimide 400mg a day for almost 2 months now. Which has been great unitl yesterday. I was so dizzy barly made it to the bathroom. Then try to get my pants up, barely could do. Try to grab my grab bars in my grannys old room. Loss fuction of my legs. Could get my words out and crying. Fell backwards into toilet. My son came to help me. He thought I needed pants down and I kept trying to tell and wave up. He had to carry me back to my bed cause my legs wouldn't move and my walker… read more
Something sounds to high. Glad you got an appt.
I’ve have been losing feeling in my legs at least 1 day a week on days I go in to work. I work at 5am. My legs just go numb and they go side to side like someone who is paralized. I have to catch myself before I fall. It doesn’t last that long. It’s pretty scary. I never admit anything scares me. I’m trying to be more open in my life. I’ve never been open about my epilepsy. I feel I’m getting worse. It just started happening a few weeks ago. Does this happen to anyone else?
