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
As far as I know, I haven't had a seizure in over a year. It took me 11 months to feel like myself again after the last one. Then I had 3 months of feeling really good. Now all of a sudden the side effects (brain fog, memory, exhaustion, depression, word recall, etc.) are back. I'm trying hard not to feel like I'm backtracking and to view it as all part of the package. For those of you whose seizures are under control, do your side effects come and go?
Has anyone herd of a infant of 14 days old start with seizures and they were so severe they damaged the brain and at 29 days Sally Lynn died. The seizures were resistant to Pentobarbitol, phenobarbital, Kepra, kedamine, fentonal, and Topamax. She was on all of these at one time and finally they were putting in a new arterial line and she died 1.5 hours later. Has anyone herd of this?
I am sorry but don’t give up hope on getting a answer to your questions. You are in my prayers and I hope you get those answers
Earlier today, a rain storm came through. Maybe a minute before this, something happened, rather not discuss it. Thought about brain tumors and intracranial pressure. When the barometer drops, ICP is higher than the pressure outside of the head. Had brain surgery, and brain tumors have the same effect- the tumor presses on the brain. Any experiences with sudden changes in air pressure?
Me too. Exactly my experience, every word. Even what my neurologist said to me this morning, exactly word for word. He said he had deep experience with epilepsy for many years and never heard of air… read more

Does anyone manufacture a watch to alert to seizures, heart problems, etc.
I only have two skinny wrists, so I don't have a lot of room for multiple watches.😁
My phone doesn't automatically call 911. It sent a picture to certain contacts. When I had a heart attack & my daughter called 911 from Michigan I tried to convince EMTs all I needed was a… read more
What do you do to remember to take meds when you take more than once a day!
And my phone scares the heck out of me all the time with reminders
I have right temporal lobe (lesions on the right side)epilepsy and I'm currently on Vimpat. Anybody out there have vivid or weird dreams? Some of mine are extremely life like and some are weird enough that I probably would tell them to anybody. Some of them stick in my memory even when I wish they wouldn't.
I have had so many and i increased my dose about 3 weeks ago and every night i have lucid & vivid weird dreams. 2 nights i didnt because i missed 2 doses on accident (memory laps).
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
