    Seizure Background
    I have been having seizures since I was 15 years old, they started randomly, at a church overnight lockin. I never had any indication that I was going to start having seizures or anything. After 3 EEG's and a couple seizures later, they said that my brainwaves didn't indicate epilepsy, but that it was just a genetic disorder passed down from someone in the family. They put me on topamax, to help with the seizures and tremors and sent me on my way. I had a couple more, and then went seizure free for 3 1/2 years when I took a medication for bronchitis, and the side effects was seizures. And they've come back with a vengeance. Now they're taking me off topamax because the side effects are making me completely miserable and putting me on Keppra. I'm hoping Keppra doesn't make me feel as miserable as topamax did.
    As of Yesterday, December 2nd, I was diagnosed with Myoclonic Epilepsy. I'm feeling happy I have a diagnosis. :)
