I think there are apps you can use which help monitor your seizures.
I used to keep a seizure diary years ago but the neurologists I see now just like to know the total amount of seizures I have a month. I use a calendar/ notepad app on my phone. I only use the calendar part specificily for my epilepsy, I mark that I had a seizure & if it is different I can write more information to remind myself for next time I talk to neuro.
Just like CQ I use a calendar and I make a key for the types of seizures I have A= aura B=absence cp= complex partial. I just write down the type of seizure I have and the time it happened. I also make a note if there's a low pressure, I'm sick, or under stress. I've been doing this for many yrs. and my Epileptologist was able to see a pattern in my seizures I would have them in the morning or later in the afternoon usually the 3rd week of the month. My Dr. also saw I was having more seizures in the fall and winter compared to the spring and summer which are called "seasonal seizures" and they happen do to lack of serotonin. I wish you the best of luck and May God Bless You!
I use a notebook to record which type of seizure I had. I write the time, & what others saw me doing or if I've injured myself (if it was a complex partial). For simple partials, I note how long they last--usually 2-3 minutes.
That list of things is exactly what I write down in my notebook. I've told family members to note what happens/what I do during my complex partials when they witness them. I especially want to know if/how I hurt myself, & anything I was doing that was very odd
That's one of the things that I hate about this whole thing. Half the time I'm not sure I had an "episode" or not. Then I can't remember what I was doing or anything else. Then my parents will tell me that I had one. They'll tell me to write it down, but my memory is so blurred that I have a hard time even doing that. Plus I'm so fatigued I don't feel like doing anything. From now on I'm going to tell my parents to write it down for me or at least sit down with me and help me write it down (ie the time, date, how long it was, what did I do etc).
Cool iPhone app called My Seizure Diary that is connected to Epilepsy.com (just another suggestion.) I also used to keep a journal, but was sporadic about it. Now that my phone is practically glued to my hand, at least I can use the app lol
