During seizures I usually have stroke like symptoms, and every time I get a seizure i feel like im having a stroke. I know that it is a seizure but I can’t stop the fear of having a stroke from coming even though I logically know I’m not having one. Has anyone experienced something like this? I can’t stop the thoughts of stroke from happening
Thanks for your answer margery! It’s comforting knowing I’m not the only one 💕
I'm worried I missed 2 days dosage of vimpat (200mg twice a day) because dtr did not call in prescription approval - I know I shouldn't wait last minute to call in refill but I called in on Wed. My last dose of vimpat Fri. nite. I am also on 100mg lamotrogine and 200mg Briviact twice a day and I haven't missed those. The pharmacy finally called today for pickup.

5 years ago a hospital would not do an MRI because of my VNS (they said it was like a pacemaker… immediate’NO’!) But I am having one done this week, and the form I had to fill out didn’t put ‘neurological devices’ in without the ‘NO’. Has technology gotten better, or am I getting a driver up at 6:30 am only to be turned away at the door? 🤷♀️
Woops, I was waking up! MRI machines are generally— or + +, now!
When I first had seizures, I had Todd’s paralysis. I would get it on my whole right arm. It would last a day or two.
In high school (1980 - 1984), I had some issues, but I was still very intelligent (though did not know until 2021 that I was suffering from brain damage from the return of my Epilepsy in 1980 to when I was finally diagnosed in treated in 1997 --- this only being possible because research was published in 1995 that proved that Epileptic Partial Seizures existed. Thus some of the things that so many more older epileptics than me were being judged for before 1995 -- such as daydreaming, bad… read more

Does anyone make smoothies? I have a NitruBullet and have been making the same one for breakfast for a long time and want to change it up. Also, if there are recommendations for someone with epilepsy. I am mainly looking for breakfast ideas, but open to any.
Thank you for the recommendations so far.
