Has Anyone Else Found An Increase To Seziures Since Covid19 And How Y People Coping With Extra Stress To Try And Reduce Seziures?

I've recently been in hospital seziures have increased waiting for MRI in out patients and had clobazam added to meds . They have said a lot of it could be the increase in stress everywhere. Does anyone have any ideas how to reduce stress or experienced similar lately due to the covid out break and the pressure it's putting on everyone.

CBD And Melatonin

CBD And Melatonin

What are your experiences with using any kind of CBD & melatonin to help with your epilepsy/symptoms. I have a few different types & strengths of products that include cbd in the ingredients and pure cbd hemp oil for a vaporizer. I’m finding the full spectrum hemp oil through a vaporizer helpful for some relief & I’ve just been using melatonin on & off for years for sleep. I’d like to incorporate natural products now, before any prescription meds are given by my Dr

Does Anyone Know If There's Any Sort Of Assistance For Someone Who Needs To Move To A State With Legal Marijuana?

I'm 21 years old and live in NC. I've been on a list of seizure meds all of which cause my seizures to increase in frequency, length and intensity. I have no health coverage whatsoever, I can't get referred to an epilepsy center due to this because no neurologist wants to see someone with no income or coverage. I know once I get on the right dosage I'll be able to work again because I've had the… read more
