I had a grand mal seizure back in January, and I have been having problems with seizure activity since I was about 12 or 13...
I always wondered if it had something to do with hormones, and especially now I wonder because it gets worse around "that time of month".... anyway, i mnentioned that to my neurologist a couple of times, and he sort of ignored me. So I mentioned it to my guynecologist, and he put me on "The Pill" because that helps even out hormones.
anyway... we'll see if that helps!
has anyone else had hormone related seizure problems? What have you done that has helped?
Also, right now I'm taking Tegretol- 200 Mg 3 times a day. I still have days when i don't feel good (tremors and spasms and things like that), but my doctor doesn't want to make my dose any higher. I've already tried Dilantin, and something else that I don't remember the name of, and those didn't work at all.
What have you guys taken, so maybe I can ask my doctor about those to maybe try, and see if they work better?
