Complex Partial Seizure While Conscious?

Complex Partial Seizure While Conscious?

All of my symptoms fit complex partial for a majority of my seizures, yet I can remember them happening, which is typically associated with simple partial seizures. Is it really complex partial in that case? My neurologist thinks so apparently.

Weather And Seizures

Weather And Seizures

Does the weather/temperature have an impact on your frequency of seizure activity? Whenever it's cold/cooler temperature, I start to experience more stomach aches which leads to a complex partial or absence seizure that's why.

Driving With Simple Partial Seizures???

Driving With Simple Partial Seizures???

I've had epilepsy for 30 years. Simple partial seizures with no loss of awareness, but I've had a few complex partial seizures. I have on average one or two simple partials every month but sometimes I go for 3 months seizure free. The last complex partial was a year ago. I have a strong and lengthy aura on every seizure and my eye twitches strongly.

I've had quite a few neuro docs and seems like they all want me to take different meds. I've been on Trileptal and zonisamide… read more

What Does Complex Seizures On The Left Temporal Lobe Look Like?

What Does Complex Seizures On The Left Temporal Lobe Look Like?

My neuro has always been certain that my complex/complex-parital seizures start in my right temporal lobe. However, my last EEG the doctor said that there is more activity on the left than they have recorded before. When I tell her what my most recent seizures are like, she still believes they are on the right. She said that if they were now starting from the left, what I look like while having a seizure would be different.

My question is for those… read more

Should I Get A Seizure Dog?

Should I Get A Seizure Dog?

So I have epilepsy but I have been seizure free for 5 years now. Although I'm not getting seizures (to my knowledge) I would like to have a seizure dog incase I am having them.

Thinking About Having VNS Implant. Is It Worth It?

Thinking About Having VNS Implant. Is It Worth It?

I have both simple and complex partial seizures. The complex partials are under control with meds but I have break thru simple partials. No loss of awareness but my new neurologist claims that I shouldn't drive because he thinks since I'm still having simples, I could possibly have a complex too. His thinking...not mine. He has suddenly told me not to drive, even though I'm experiencing less seizures than I've ever had (30+ years).

In order to keep my freedom, I'm… read more
