Trying to understand seizures
Hi I'm new here, and I'm trying to get an idea of what causes my seizures, and now looking to see what type of doctor I should see. My Background: Type 1 diabetic since 1987. I have had several seizures over probably the last 10 years, and the first were probably low sugar related. The first neurologist I can't remember when I saw him but maybe after my 2nd or 3rd, said take these: Lamotrigine. I tried this for a couple years and noticed at work things were getting cloudy. I stopped taking them, and didn't have any issues for maybe a year. I started having seizures again, and did self research(no longer seeing neurologist) and thought it was maybe caused by diet coke(aspartame) went cold turkey and they disappeared. After almost a year later started drinking it during summer in small quantity. Then around Thanksgiving brother in-law visited (always bought diet coke for his visit) and I started consuming large amounts that week. I felt a seizure coming on, but was able to reverse out of it. Started to think aspartame is causing them. Went back to just water and researched more about aspartame. Looks like a standard issue for some drinkers of diet coke. I can't stand water so I started doing Sucralose water sweetners, and I put a lot in every drink, again had a seizure. So went back to water and they disappeared again. So again sick of water, and thought maybe Stevia, it is not a chemical (I was thinking the large amounts of artificial sweeteners was causing the brain waves to cross fire and cause seizures). Again I had a seizure when I was consuming Stevia in large amounts. Today, I'm thinking it's not a chemical poisoning, but maybe my body causing a seizure because when I'm low sugar, I have large amounts of what looks like sugar, but it doesn't raise my blood sugars. So the brain does a reset and a seizure occurs. I have been drinking water now, and will avoid all artificial sweeteners and will continue to test over the next year to see if I'm now clean again. Is there a doctor I can see who is researching something similar, and maybe this question can help others who have the same issue.
