Feb 12, 2018 · Living with epilepsy - Introduce yourself & meet others in Epilepsy & Seizures

Irene, I also have sensitivity to the flashing or strobe lights that will trigger my seizures. The Mayo Clinic will have a lot of information that will help answer a lot of questions. There is so much information in their site and the Epilepsy Foundation. There is a CBD Oil being introduced to help control seizures in children and now in adults. Your doctor and the Mayo Clinic may be able to give you the information to help you with The CBD Oils and a lot of other information regarding the seizures. God Bless You.

Jul 26, 2017 · Menopause and Changes In Seizures in Epilepsy & Seizures

Hi Julie, I’ve been taking seizure medications since I was 10. The Doctors have never been able to control the seizures but they’ve cut cut them from about 20 to 8 a month. I’m in the Postmenopausal stages now. Most of my seizures come within a weeks time. At times I have a lot more auras and Fast heartbeats during those auras, they last 30 seconds and It takes up to 2 minutes to slow my heart down. The Drs. Told me not to follow the hormone replacement therapy due to developing cancer from it. I have some information from WebMd. I hope this helps.

I have Internal Bowel Syndrome, the IBS started in the past 10 years. I’m 51years old, I would appreciate any information you could give me on the keto diet and a low glycemic index diet, and any type of foods that could control the seizures.

I’ve read a lot about the seizures that women receive with perimenopause & menopause. I’m in postmenopause now and would love to talk to some women who have gone through these stages and are still encountering the hormones that bring on the seizures monthly. I was reading about that on webmed. I will read this article from Epilepsy Foundation that you posted. I’ll check into these 2 discussions. Thank You.

Hello. I’m Chris. I’m 51 years old. When I was a Baby in a crib, my lungs filled up with fluid and my brain was deprived of oxygen. My mother came into the room to check on me in the crib and found me and rushed me to the ER. Today, the Drs. Think that may be why I have the scarring on my brain. I’ve had seizures since I was 10 years old. I have Partial Complex seizures. I had the VNS put in me and it didn’t work. The Drs. Took it out of me. I’ve been on many different medications. At the present time, I’m taking Tegretol, Keppra, and Vimpat. It seems these 3 medicines have controlled my seizures better than any other medicine in the past. I still have approximately 8 to 10 seizures a month in comparison to 20 or more that I used to have. I get them in clusters around the hormone time of the month. At times when I’m working outside or exercising too much I get over exerted and I’ll have a seizure or at times I’ve fallen down. My husband has come to my rescue me and caught me many times. I get triggers from cold, perfumes, strong, and, cleaning fluids. It seems the older I get the more sensitive I get to triggers. I’d like to get some information in reference to some food that may help.
