Re: Seizure???

Pinkcell,
try to relax some if you can. I know that it is hard, but your anxiety could trigger another seizure. The more calm the better for us epi's. I am glad you are going to the doctor again. You need to get you meds right. There is no point in taking them they or not working or the dose is too low. I will tell you that I am on Keppra 500mg and Zonegan 100mg both twice a day. I asked my neurologist, why 2 different ones? and he said they work in different areas of my brain. I must say that I hated it at first because I felt like a zombie. But I am 6 months in and I can function fine and have not had a grand mal seizure since the meds. I am not telling you to take what I am taking. I am just saying, talked to your neurologist and be truthful with him/her. they don't havve epi. but know all about it. so you must explain how you feel and what you think you might need. I know they think we are stupid, but we are not. Take your mom or a friend or a husband is you have one with you. Make sure you write down all of you concerns to you friend to talk to the doctor. I had to do that for a long time with my wife to talk for me until he finally reallized I wasn't an idiot.. I have very good questions but can't remember on the spot when he it talking a mile a minute. So try that if you haven't yet. I have given the right dose of meds that have stopped my seizures. I want that for you too. It is such a hard situation and not many understand. But you will be o.k. try not to worry and have a good attitude about your self. Positive thinking can help a lot believe it or not. You can take your trials and use them to better the world. You may not see it now, but you will. It is just little steps at a time.
God Bless you,
Tim
