Bad news

Posted by Leonard @jakedduck1, Jul 24, 2020

Well I was at Costco today mainly to buy water and a pie because I saw a post that John,
@johnnishop was talking about on the Neuropathy section. I haven’t been thinking of anything else except getting a pie at Costco but they only sell pies from September to December. The lady said they ended up throwing them all out. I told her she should’ve giving me a call. But that’s not the point of my story
I was doing fine for about 10 minutes then the back of my neck started hurting really bad and I felt weak I didn’t think I could make it back out to my car. On my way home I had double vision which I occasionally have. I stopped at my neurologist office which was a mistake and I saw him and he believes that I had a focal aware seizure in Costco. Although I suppose that is possible I don’t really believe that’s what happened. After 13,000+ seizures I pretty much know when I have a seizure not Tonic-Clonic seizures but focal seizures pretty much for sure, Especially Focal Aware seizures. He wouldn’t let me drive home. Now I’m wondering if he’s going to yank my drivers license again. I just paid $3100 to get my car fixed and I’m certainly not gonna let it just sit again and deteriorate. He can’t prove I had a seizure and I can’t prove that I didn’t and of course the motor vehicle department is going to believe him over me. So now I have to find a rheumatologist and see if there’s arthritis in my neck and if it could’ve possibly caused the issue at Costco. The symptoms that I had at Costco could have certainly been a seizure manifestation.
I was going to ask him for an EEG to see if there was any focal activity but that would only give him more ammunition to prove his case.
I imagine he will yank my license again but whatever happens will happen, no need to stress about it.

Hi Pam,
I thought about my medication being toxic but since I’ve been on them for so long I never had side effects other than drowsiness I didn’t considered side effects a possibility although anything is possible. Thankfully no more dizziness or episodes.
