My friend suggested to start taking a supplement every day. I have a bottle of the Bausch and Lomb which I never finished but I am going to start again now. I figure if I start taking a supplement and have a good diet that might keep it from getting worse. I have already pretty much cut out processed foods in my diet which hasn't been easy as I now have a lot of food prep. I figured maybe it would help my seizures as you don't really know all the ingredients in what we buy. I think it has helped some but think that sleep is very important too for seizures as is watching your carbs.
As far as the EEG I think that in my case my last one was a false negative as I had 2 while I had an at-home EEG. I don't know if
they are very reliable. Had one several years ago at a hospital but that showed nothing as it was only 1 hour. You probably remember the days when they gave you a drug before the EEG but they no longer do that. I do know a neurologist who has the training in EEGs. The
only problem was she suggested laser surgery at our first meeting. Which I now know may not even help and is permanent.
Thanks for your response Jake.
