    MN Neuro-Oncology symposium

    May 9th and 10th Minneapolis MN. Not strictly epilepsy, but quite detailed presentations relating to "neuro oncology"! I've been at the first two they had and it was professional level material. The parent/patient was a little watered down (for me) so I stuck with the raw medical presentation...

    Brain Atrophy & Seizures

    Has anyone been told you have Brain Atrophy & if so, do you have seizures with it? The Neurologist told me that I have it, other doctors discovered it but the Neurologist just confirmed it. It's shrinkage of the brain, sometimes affecting the whole brain or just part of it and it can occur by...

    EEG is done, now the wait

    Well, home from the EEG. Not much to tell, I won't know the results for 1 to 2 days. Last time, they did a series of flashing lights with my eyes closed and I blew on a pinwheel for 3 minutes to bring on hyperventilation. They didn't do the pinwheel thing this time because of the fact I had a...

    Perhaps symptoms we have with seizures tell us where in the brain it comes from

    I was thinking that since a lot of us including me often don't know what part of the brain the seizures stem from, perhaps based on our symptoms, that's where they originate. Such as speech problems, maybe they originate in the temporal lobe, memory loss, maybe seizures happen in the frontal...

    Brain Flashes?

    I don't know if any of you have had this but last night I was in bed, the room was dark and I had my eyes closed. I just started to drift off when it happened. You know how during a storm, you see flash lightening on the horizon? Kind of also like just seeing the glow of city lights on the...

    When your Neurologist gives you that strange look

    I don't know if anyone's done it but the last time I saw him, he mentioned it being a year since the seizure and I said almost a year but I wasn't thinking about the seizure, I was thinking about the brain surgery cause they were two months apart. He thought I was talking about the seizure and...

    My Head after brain surgery

    These pics I took myself after my brain surgery. You can see the incision and the red spot next to it is where they put in a drain, a long tube attached to a bulb similar to that you see on a blood pressure cuff and where they drilled the hole in my skull. Will always have a dent in my head.

    Brain Scarring and or Damage

    The last time I saw my Neurologist, he brought up the fact that because of the bleed, I may have scar tissue on my brain & I've read this can lead to more seizures. He didn't go into detail but he did mention it. I plan to ask him about it at next appointment. In all my research and cosidering...

    This is my brain MRI, shows Blood on left side

    This image alone shows the images of what my brain looked like on the MRI when they discovered the blood. Entire right side was filled so much, it pressed on my brain. Probably started bleeding at the time of seizure and wasn't discovered till 2 months later. YAY, got it right this time, was...

    New to Forum: New York

    Just joined the forum hoping to see if my symptomology fits an epilepsy profile of any kind. First, a little background. I was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder approximately 7 years ago. Tried many medications until this past year when I finally admitted I was anorexic and bulemic, which, of...
