Jul 19, 2017 · Living with epilepsy - Introduce yourself & meet others in Epilepsy & Seizures

Yes, it was a brain tumor, but luckily the biopsy came back negative. The double vision almost happens once daily, but the worst part is sometimes I lose control of my body. As if my wife has to help me to the bedroom to sleep rest it off.

Jul 19, 2017 · Living with epilepsy - Introduce yourself & meet others in Epilepsy & Seizures

My name is William and supposedly I fell off a swing set when I was two years old. I haven’t had a seizure until i was 46 years old (2011). The doctors took a golf size object out of my head which consumed some of my brain. So they had to take some of that out as well. I was out drinking with the guys from work (which I did quite frequently). My guess is that led to the seizure, but not sure. My seizures isn’t quite as frequent as most of the people on this board. I was on Keppra at first for three years. Prior to the seizures, I was getting Exceeds on my reviews at work. Immediately after the seizure (and after my rehab) I was getting does not meet. My doctor recommended I get a neuropsychological evaluation. I took it and the results were positive that there was some brain deficiencies. Which only made sense considering the operation. To make a long story short, she could send me on disability, so I went to another doctor at a different hospital. They switched me to another medication (Oxtellar XR). I’ve been on this med since 2015, but lost weight about 15lbs and have double vision occasionally. I’m not sure what to do considering the Keppra didn’t seem to work and I’m having problems with the Oxtellar XR. I’m also taking Carvedilol 25Mgs twice a day, 5mg of amlodipine, 5mg of Lipsinopril. My last seizure was January 17, so it could be that I have another one coming. Or, the fact that my double vision have become more severe and i almost pass out with it might be the alternative to an actual seizure. Perhaps someone can help me withe this one.
