Re: Help, Petit mal? hormonal? stress?? Help!!
Hi, actually I had the same petit mals for years, exept mine would happen 90% of the time while I was in rem sleep or the morning hours. I also had auras everytime I had a spell, and I also drove but thankfully never had a spell while driving. My seizures would happen 2 weeks prior to my periods, and since I was irregular, it was my way of knowing when my period was coming...lol Im speaking in past tense because I bad brain surgery April/2008 and been free since, Im still on my meds, but hope to tamper off next year hopefully. In regard to the HRT, my neuro and GYN felt I was better off with the surgery because I was irregular and wouldnt work the same. This depends on the person so ask her neurologist and her Gyn it might work for her.. hope this helps, Best of luck
