About Me

  • About arnie
    Seizure Background
    I was born in 1958 and diagnosed with epilepsy in 1992 after having a GTC seizure, although in retrospect I probably had smaller seizures, and possibly unwitnessed GTCs, for much of my life. I have only had one GTC in the past 27 years but I have probably 300 or so simple and/or complex partial szs. per year. I'm currently on Lamictal, and have a vns, which was implanted 1-8-14 and activated on 1-20-14. I doubt that I will ever be seizure-free, but I am hopeful that the vns will reduce the number of seizures I have. I pretty much don't think meds will ever do that. I've been on a number of them and either they don't work too well or the side-effects are intolerable. That's why I decided to try the vns.
    Treatments
    Lamictal 400 mg/day. I have had a vns since January of 2014.
    Location
    The beautiful Pacific Northwest U.S. (in the rain shadow of the Cascades)
    Interests
    Bicycle shop owner, former social worker, amateur musician, animal lover, husband, grandpa.
