Well, I don't care what the doctor says, today I've come to the conclusion that stress is causing my seizures. The neuro increased my meds from 800mg tegretol XR to 1200mg about 2 weeks ago. I was doing fine for about a week, then all of a sudden **** hit the fan!! I'm looking into my first new car. You know how that is, exciting, stressfull, all kinds of emotions at the same time. Every time I have talked to someone about getting the car I've had a seizure, and that has been like 8 times today. No deja vu like any other time, just a full force partial complex which lasts longer than before too by like 5-10 seconds. Neuro says that we won't change meds until i reach max dose or stop having seizures. What the hell, we all ready know the meds aren't working like they should, so why not add a med or change it
This is starting to **** me off. I'm fine at work, but on my days off I'm getting these damn things. Had 2 EEG's within about 3 months and they both came out neg. Had an MRI a few days ago. Stop giving me tests and switch my meds all ready. Every time I bring up stress as a factor they just look at me like I don't know what I'm talking about. Well doesn't this just prove what I've been thinking for the past year????
Sorry about the rant, had to do it. These things are getting on my nerves, and i just needed to let it out.
