Does Anyone Else Feel Extreme Anger After Seizures?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I had 4 grand mal seizures since last night. I don't know if it's real but I feel like my boyfriend is deliberately angering me. I hadn't had a seizure since January 26, not even the staring type or ones where I just drop. I have so much stress on me right now but I feel so angry and full of rage and like I don't fit in my skin. Does anyone else feel like this after seizures? Furious, crying, paranoid? I feel so totally alone. Nobody understands and I'm tired of trying..

Is Having Speech Difficulties Signs Of Having A Seizure? Or Is It Side-effects From Medications?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I had a conversation with a few people here. We all have had difficulties speaking. Getting confused, slurring words, dyslexia getting worse, not being able to put sentences together properly, etc.
If that’s a seizure, what type of seizure is it?
Or is it more likely just side-effects of medications?
Thanks.

Speech therapy might help.

Recently My Seizures Changed, I Used To Get More Grand Mal Seizures
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Now I get more smaller seizures that for the most part I don't even know I'm having. Unless I bite my lip, tongue, fall down, or just walk off the edge of something instead of stepping down. These seizures are becoming more frequent,followed by a headache, dizziness, and loopy feeling, I don't have insurance anymore so I don't have meds anymore. Does anyone else get dizziness and feel loopy?

Do Anticonvulsant Seizure Medicines Only Prevent Grand Mal Seizures From Happening?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I take an anticonvulsant seizure medicine called Lamotrogine (generic for Lamictal). They do seem to control the grand mal seizures. However, I still do experience strange feelings from time to time off and on throughout the day; not everyday but still, a LOT of the times, at any given time. I also experience spontaneous jerks of either a hand, a foot, any limb or sometimes my whole body. But it ends just as quickly as it began. Sometimes, I'll "space out" and kinda feel like noises near me are… read more
