Exclamation 2017 ILAE New Seizure Classifications

Thought this was interesting..

Clears things up somewhat and shows that there are many types of seizures but it seems complicated (somewhat).

This is a very interesting information. I will have to read this material many more times to grasp it in a generalized and personal manner.

I wonder if these shifts in definitions will create confusion/misunderstanding even in the medical community. My seizures tend to have a pattern but on occasion manifest differently.

Thank you for posting this, Stronger Than Epilepsy. Be well!

I have Primary Generalized Epilepsy, I use to have it when I was a kid, It came back, I have alot of different spells, I do not have Grand-mal. I use to be a welder, I could not seem to remember measurements or how to set my machine sometimes, that was my first sign something was wrong with my head, I quit working, Then moved on to Home Depot, Where my bosss was also getting unpleasant with me for not remembering, For 3 years this kind of stuff was going on, I just got an EEG and was clear to the doc, I am haveing seizures. I also have 3 kids. I'm now trying to get SSDI, and have no clue how any of this works
