Prior to menopause I had been seizure free for 20 years. I have been on seizure medication since the age of six when I was diagnosed with epilepsy. At the age of 48 and premenopausal I started having seizures. Now ten years later post menopause I continue to have the seizures. Medication has not worked and hormone therapy has not worked. My seizures come almost every month and last for about 7-8 days and then they stop. I have tried different medications and even hormone replacement therapy and so far nothing has worked. I am wondering if there is anyone who has had or is having a similar experience dealing with a change in their seizure activity relating to premenopausal or menopausal. If so what have you tried, articles you may have read? My doctor is at a loss and has somewhat given up. I have read articles on Catamenial seizures however these do not apply to me. It’s difficult to find any literature about this subject or possible solutions.
