I am new here and totally confused at this point. I have MS and just had a visit with a new MS neuo. I knew I had had a couple of seizures, but it had been put down to having ms.
I have been told by my neuo that I have epilepsy and that a lot of the
sx I am having are due to epilepsy and not the ms. He said there are huge scars on my brain in places that always cause epilepsy.
He feels like I am having quite a few seizures. he has explained to me that there are all kinds of seizures and some of them only last for seconds and I may not be aware of them.
He also says I have a basilar migraine disease in my brain.
He seems to be the most concerned about the epilepsy right now and is changing my medication. I was on a low dose of trileptal for seizures.
He is changing that to a much higher dose of Topamax. I have to gradually
change these out and he said he may add something else too. Are any of you taking Topamax?
Now, I wonder how I know what is what??
Everthing that I thought was ms sx was not all due to ms??
Does having epilepsy cause the same things: Balance problems, unable to walk on some days, weakness in arms and legs, grasping problems,
unable to think, unable to say the correct word, forgetfulness,
can't stand noise or light?? The list is very long.
I sure would appreciate any help I could get from ya'll.
