On Lamictal - Question on my seizures
I had my first seizure at age 7, and have probably had 20 since then. I am now 28 years old. The seizures occur maybe once or twice a year. They are bad grand mal seizures lasting up to a minute. I take 800 mg of Lamictal a day. So I generally have them under control due to the meds. Usually they result from lack of sleep. And they generally always happen in the morning, or middle of night if I get up to go to the bathroom or get a drink of water.
Every once in awhile I have this brief episodes where my arms and head start shaking, and I kind of start losing my balance, legs giving out....but I don't fall. I don't completely lose consciousness, and the episode can be as brief as a few seconds. These episodes also always happen in the morning, and seem to occur if I am in the midst of thinking about alot of stuff.
Anyone else have this type of thing happen.
Also, in a more general sense, my last grand mal occured on a morning where I had taken my meds the night before, taken my meds, showered, got out of the shower, was standing in front of the mirror...and BOOM! Out of nowehere. I only had like two drinks the night before, got plenty of sleep, and was not really in any stress. Why are these happening so randomnly and out of nowhere???!!!!
