Will epilepsy watches like embrace and epilert work for secondary generalized seizures
I do know someone had wristband on and they were just tying their shoelaces and the wristband told them they were having a seizure. It sounds like any wristband can't tell the difference between… read more
Every couple of years I have seizures then my Dr wants to try something new or ups the dosage. The meds I'm on now are making me dizzy and off balance
Will it set off with excessive motion.
I have heard of this but I am afraid to shell out the money only ro have it not work. I'm waiting for it to be out a little longer so I can hear how well it works. If it works well, I would be more… read more
I've been without a neurologist or epitologist for over a year do to the COVID crud my primary Care has like myself been trying to get me into a neurologist. But as of yet no goal.
This is my biggest problem in regards to neurologists/epileptologists. I was seeing a local neurologist in a small town and I couldn't see where he was doing me any good. I'd go in. He'd look at… read more
I was told I have Grand Mal and other Seizure Disorders one of them called Pseudoseizures . Anyone else ever hear of this? I'm told it's hard to diagnose and often gone undiagnosed or is missed. My family and I was just grasping the Grand Mal Seizures now there's more to try and sort thru?
I agree especially with MarKC - thanks for reminding me of ' non epileptic seizures' I've also heard of them being called ' pseudoseizures' too

I think it’s called Overland Park Regional Medical Center. I don’t think I’ve ever been there.
Im going on a trip soon thats a 17 hr time difference ahead of where i normally live. Ive gone through 2 hr time differences at most. Has anybody gone on far distanced trips? How did that go with the seizures? Was it harder goinng to your travel destinatiom or bacck home after? Any advice to hopefully help make if slightly easier with managing the seizures?
I have travelled to Europe from NY, that’s a 6 hour difference; 17 hours is a whole other story.
The advice I would give is to adjust your meds according to your usual time intervals, and not just… read more
Hi all. To those using Tegretol. Did your memory worsen after you started to use it? I am on 200mg am and 400mg pm. Thanks.
I've been on this for 24 years I had my last increase a few months ago so now the dosage is getting very high.
My seizures started at 52. I have no idea why, other than that it was a very stressful time. It was also when my perimenopause kicked more into high gear. I'm trying to figure out what side effects are from my meds and what is from hormones. I started HRT last month. I do have more energy, but get stressed easily. I haven't had headaches in a long time and now they are back. I'm just not sure which is worse; HRT or no HRT but epilepsy side effects. I do know that HRT can interfere with… read more
Nicole, please do some research about the seizure meds that you are now taking. I have experienced the depression because of the seizure meds. At least my Neuro listened and changed the med when I… read more
So I'm going back to college. I start on August 11th. Here's my deal though. I've been in and out of college since I graduated in 2009 because of Epilepsy problems. I've gone to college three other times already. Also for three different things. Should have stayed with the same track I know but I'm indecisive and I get bored easily. First time I was at the community college, I was there for my AA but I had just found out that I had Epilepsy. My GPA started dropping near the end of a year and a… read more
