New epileptic and HORRIFIED
Hi I had a tumor removed from my right frontal lobe nearly 3 years ago and then ended up with a staph infection. I now have epilepsy. I started off with Grand Mals, then started having them while conscious. I am frightened all the time.
I now will have an aura first then my face pulls down on one side, I start dribbling and biting my tongue. I stiffen up, cant control my limbs and make that ghastly noise when I cant breath and am frothing at the mouth. I hear my children screaming in fear and they run out of the room.
I haven't had a seizure for almost a year (I do have either panic attacks or auras though) I hate to go out on my own.
About 3 weeks ago I had the sensation of my face pulling down again, I rubbed it and it went away. I am now permitted to drive. What do you think? I am on Trileptal 600mg, Dilantin 350mg, Frisium 20mg, Rivotril 3mg and Aropax 10mg per day. I feel terrible all the time and am not sure whether I am having panic attacks, auras or am losing my mind due to all the pills. I have suffered severe anxiety all my life. I feel as though the world is not real. I have a very poor memory and get confused a lot. People think I am putting it on. I have also gained 10kilos, are any of my meds known for weight gain?
