Has anyone else felt like they are drunk without drinking? I call them Mini seziures. These happen quite often. When they start I feel woozy, my legs give out so I can't walk, and I'm spinning without my eyes moving. My seziures start with a Panic attack so I have xanax. If I take a Xanax it goes away. It was really bad when I was in Vegas at the beginning of the year. The mini seizure got so bad that I started hallucinating. That has never happened before. I can't tell my neurologist… read more
Stopped taking my seizure meds, nothing bad had happened in 3 months. Am I taking too much of a risk?
The Dangers of Abruptly Stopping Antidepressants
Hi there. I had 5 Grand mal seizures within 5 hours 9 days ago.

Has anyone had experience with Emory in Atlanta or the Mayo in Jacksonville? We had decided after going to Emory (traffic awful) for the initial consult that we would just have everything done at the Mayo because I am already being seen by them for my AVM.

Do any of you feeling epilepsy holds you back in the workplace like being denied promotions or something like that?
I had another seizure last night. The 6th one in a years time. I will at sometime in the future be having a video eeg. I read several things that make me think i may have pnes. Somethings point to epilepsy and some to pnes. I am looking on YouTube to find examples of people having different seizures and will show them to my husband. Some people have both. If i do have PNES I have been having the wrong treatment for years. I think maybe because i have an AVM and a seizure was the way that it was found that… read more

I have been taking CBD oil, under my drs instruction, for 4 months. I carefully titrated up to a dose of .75 mls in the morning and the evening. I have noticed that since being at this dose my seizures have actually increased. Coincidence or related to oil? Have any of you experienced or heard of this? My dr has suggested titrate down till I am off of it and see if this changes the amount of seizures. My seizure neuro wants to increase my Lamotrigine. Thoughts, comments or concerns?
