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
Anyone have seizure reactions to watching a 3D movie? I sure would like to watch Thor Love and Thunder in 3D but not sure if my brain will react. Thoughts please?
I think the type of movies like being a stressful or comedy might have something different each time too!
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
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

Has anyone had side effects with certain foods, with your medications. Cause ever since I started taken lamitical I cant eat any of the spanish beans I used eat. Which is weird. It used to be fine when I ate spanish beans with rice but ever since I started taken lamitical for my seizures is that a side effect or no?
I'm on that but I'm just getting immune to every medicine 😢 I wouldn't take Felbamate
What is it like?
I I qualify for a group home, and I just don’t know if that is what I really want to do so I was wondering if any of you live in one and kinda tell me what it’s like.😰
I do know in Bonner springs of one like one here where I live. If it is still there
I was diagnosed several years ago with grand mal seizures, except that an EEG wouldn't detect them while I was having them. Was diagnosed with hereditary seizures.Was wondering has anyone else heard of the term or something similar??
What is 3D printing? My son is on 3000mg of Keppra but don't know if it's 3D printing?
This is a general question of public opinion. I myself always assumed it was, but apparently it's not at least according to Social Security in Indiana that is. I finally decided to apply b/c someone else I know receives disability do to having seizures which started after an aneurysm they also happen to work as well. So I decided to give it a try and was denied b/c epilepsy was not a disability that would stop me from working. So opinions do you agree or disagree on Epilepsy being a disability?
I am on disability for seizures. I can’t work because I’ve had them since I was a kid so they’re preexisting. We’re not able to do several things normal people can.
Something some said got to me. Not all forms of epilepsy make tou loose consciensness. I am always alart and and aware of several of my triggers. My sezuires are either absent, mind staring or simple/conplex jerks (like a cold chill).
I have complex partial seizures. My neurologist and I have talked about my license as I have brought it up. He sees no reason to revoke my license and my diagnosis does not require them to be.
Anyone else still have their license?
I still have mine but I'm not allowed to drive for 6 months after I've had a sz. Just had a major one that sent me to the hospital and required stitches above my right eye.
