mini siezures off and on all day long it seems

Hello I am new here. Please excuse my typing as I am sort of scramblled right now. for the last few days I have bheen having what I thing are mini seizures that arelatinig fore up to ten and fifteen minutes and then a hour ot two in betwween then starting again.
I am on 200 mg topamax 2x a day and thhe neuro is trying to intor duce 300mg of nurtontin 3x a day. I also take 200 mg of plaquinil 2x a day 15mg of prednisone , methotrexate twice a week, for lupus, 60 mg of armour and 25mc levoxal for low thyroid, 75mg plavix because I have TIAs,
Last year at this time I had a bit of trouble with bread thoughs nothing like this thoufgh. Is there such a thing as seassonal for epilepsy? I tell you I am feeling drained after the last few days, one after the other is simply grueling. I am calling my neuro today and asking for a EEG.
Has anyone else every gad anytgugb line this and what did they finally do for you? if so. Yesturday I threw up after the last seizure, I had never had that happen beore. I just lay on the floor in the bathroom afterwoord too exhausted to move and my dog sat next tome andlooked so worried.
I am really glad to find this site so I can ask some questions. Thank you in adviance.

Re: mini siezures off and on all day long it seems

I had something similar to that. I think you need an MRI and EEG to find the underlying cause but in my case I had a cavernous malformation that unexpectedly bled because of over-exertion during hot weather and caused parkinson's like tremors that basically continued around the clock.

I don't know if you have the same thing so I won't go into details of my treatment but it sounds like you need immediate medical attention. I would consider this an emergency. My neurologist tried to downplay it and I got another doctor. Good luck to you.
