Re: A Question For All You Girls
it's great to know theres someone else that has the same type of epilepsy i have.at least its what i think i have.when i was 17 and had my first seizure they put me on dilantin and told me i'd probably have to take it the rest of my life.that was it.it wasnt until 5 yrs ago my neuro weaned me off of dilantin since i was seizure free for 7 yrs after a month i had a seizure and went back on dilantin.since then ive realized that i get these myoclonic jerks around my period.the neuros never told me this could be a time that i was predisposed to having a seizure. they just want me to take the medicene and not ask questions.
ive never been on the pill as i was told the dilantin would make it ineffective as birth control.however thats not an issue with me anymore.let me know how your making out with that! also what kind of auras do you have. i only get a myoclonic jerk.thats it! ive heard of people having auras and didnt know what they were.feels like ive been living under a rock all these years!these threads have really enlightened me on epilepsy and the different types that people experience.thanks for your info.
