    Seizure newbie

    I posted a couple of weeks ago as "New to this." I promised I would come back with lotsa questions. So, I'm back. I've just been diagnosed with partial seizures that I've been told I've had all my life. I thought they were migraine symptoms/auras/after-effects. My problem is, now I don't...

    trembling/shaking partial seizures?

    The trembling/shaking feelings I've been having have been getting worse and more frequent. (I presume these to be partial seizures). I'm now getting trembling feelings in my face and body quite frequently mostly when I lay down for a nap or sleep, and also an annoying eye twitch on and off...

    college student with partial seizures

    Hey all! I'm a junior in college currently, and I've been seizure free for four years on medication. However, I'm having some trouble dealing with having epilepsy, and don't have any friends who have it. I've started thinking about post-college careers, which is scary enough as it is, but I'm...

    What do I do when he's having a long partial?

    Hi, some here may know that I have a developmentally disabled son who has been having partials every day for the past 10 days. The neuro prescribed additional medicine (Keppra) and he just doubled my son's dose yesterday. So, my son is taking 500 mg of Dilantin and 2000 mg of Keppra now. My...

    How long does it take for Keppra to make a difference, ugh?

    Hello, my son began Keppra on March 18th and is on 1000 mg a day. He also takes 500 mg of Dilantin a day and has for almost 2 years. (The neuro added Keppra when 2 tonic clonics broke through almost 2 weeks ago.) He's had partials almost every day for the past 9 days, which is new for him...

    B6 vitamins to mitigate effects of Keppra

    Hi, it's comforting to be here. I have a 27 yr. old, developmentally delayed son who was diagnosed with epilepsy 23 months ago. He was on 400 mg of dilantin (phenytoin) per day and appeared to be seizure free until March 10, 2014. That day, he had 2 tonic clonics and has had 5 partials in the...

    Oh, hi! About me.

    Hi from Australia. My temporal lobe seizures started decades ago. The likely cause is an angioma. They are well controlled by tegretol and lamictal with no issues until now. My liver enzymes are now sky high and it looks like tegretol may no longer a good drug for me. This is very unexpected...

    Temporal Lobe Epilepsy at 27... possible link to other past & current conditions?

    Hi Team! I have found your articles very helpful in exploring some issues I've been having lately. However, as you know seizures can be caused by so many factors I'm having a hard time sorting it all out. My Doctor as well has not been very helpful or seamed to want to look into things past the...

    Could this be partial seizures or non-epileptic events

    Hi. About year ago I was diagnosed with pseudoseizures when one afternoon I started convulsing and hallucinating after taking a few hits of cannabis. Nothing was wrong with the weed itself, as I smoked more of it the next day without any negative side effects. What was strange about the...

    Hi! New here, and new to seizures. Lots of questions

    Hi there! I'll give you a little background (and I mean seriously condensed because it's a long story) so my questions will make more sense. I have never had any serious health issues, but there's a family history of migraines, psychological disorders (though nothing more serious than bipolar)...

    running and simple partial seizures

    I've had 3 Generalized Tonic-Clonic seizures which have been controlled by lamictal. Now I get simple partial seizures. It seems they happen when I run, more often then not. They come about once a week. During the winter, while being a strict vegan, I rarely got them. Now that I've fallen off...
