My boyfriend of 5 years has GWS. He has headaches, trouble sleeping, fatigue, hand tremors, memory lose, joint pain, stomach problems, rashes on his back that come and go, and resently he started passing out. After an episode we would go to the hospital and they could find nothing wrong. They kept trying to say that he was depressed. They would not listen to things we were telling them and treating him terrible. I had to take him outside the VA hospital and pay out of my own pocket for a neurologist to have other tests run. That's when they did an EEG on his brain and found in the left frontal lobe seizure activity. They have now put him on seizure mediction and the pressure he felt behind his left eyes is better. He still has migraines, but has not passed out lately. Has anyone else saw the seizure activity. We have just now started to research this.
