A Newbie ... unfortunately
In all of my life (58yrs) I would never think this would happen to me...but it did over the weekend. I have been taking two different anti seizure medications for migraine headaches and my back pain (Divalproex ER & Neurontin) but they didn't stop me from having 2 Tonic-Clonic seizures back to back (status epilepticus?) on Friday. After everything was done it took me almost 24hrs to recover. My neurologist told me to go to the ER. Lots of tests. The doctors at the hospital told me to up my Divalproex ER to 3-500mg per day and see my neurologist when I get home. The people at the Denver hospital were great. I hope to see my neurologist sometime this week.
Is it unusual for a person my age to start having these kind of seizures?
