← Return to Status Epilepticus
@jakedduck1 – I noted that the article @hopeful33250 mentioned talked about what might trigger status epilepticus. Did you note any factors prompted status epilepticus in you when you had this occur many years ago?

When you have Intractable Tonic-Clonic seizures like I did that's a risk factor in itself. As a teenager I stopped taking my medicine which caused my first episode. Not sure about all the other times. I had retrograde amnesia when I woke up 8 or so months later forgetting virtually everything I knew from age 15 back. I didn't know my parents or brother or anyone else. I couldn't tie my shoes or walk very well but the worst thing was forgetting how to play the Piano. So if anyone who has Epilepsy, NEVER stop or miss a dose of you medication.Do as I say, not as I do.
