Jan 6, 2019 · Pseudo Seizures? in Epilepsy & Seizures

my Pseudo seizures started at the age of 13 they are from post traumatic stress disorder. I experienced something that I was not ready to feel so now I am 61 years old I am on Vimpat Lryica Carbatrol & Briviact this is a lot of medications yet I am under control. These kind of seizures are due to stomach seizures and stress as well. The Neurologist discovered that I have four kinds of seizures I have not had a Grandma since I was 23 years old while going off my seizure medicine since I was pregnant. I am interested in stomach seizures. Blessings to you Cindy Pekarek

all I can say is that I didn't have Brain Surgery due to the fear of this situation Like Leonard says doctors are not Gods they are only practicing on us that is why a doctor is in practice.

Sep 8, 2018 · Agraphia and Anomia Resulting from Epilepsy in Epilepsy & Seizures

yes I have this condition I try to speak and sometimes I cannot think of the right word, when I speak I am thinking of the right word and the wrong word comes out. When I am typing I can correct the words online. sometimes I use a different word since I cannot speak the word in the right manner. I would like to speak about Nero Feed Back the doctor gave me a prescription for it in order to help my psycho systematic Seizures maybe that will help with my Aphasia and agraphia these conditions are very frustrating just like not remembering what you just did. I am 60 although I look like I am in my 40's so I am going to bring this up to my doctor. I have found at UC Davis if we see a Nero Surgeon they just want to present surgery or pills this doctor didn't give me a chance to speak about these conditions we are focusing on today

May 26, 2018 · Seizure control: I can't seem to get any help in Epilepsy & Seizures

Its not that people don't care it is that we are a very hard case since not one of us have the same conditions of seizures. I was told that I was a complicated case due to having many kinds of symptoms some are Psycho Motor some are Partial Complex seizures I have not had a grand mal since I was 23 years old. I was told that mine are psycho somatic meaning my brain gets stressed and I have these kinds of spells lately I have found out that they are due to holding my breath since I am concerned about you I would like to let you know that you have to be your own advocate some times we have to ask the doctor for help like getting a second opinion like I did at Mayo Clinic. I would like to let you know that you are not alone many others have the same situation that they feel that the doctors don't have a cure right away. It is so sad that we have to go through so many medications before the doctor can finally help us or there are those doctors that don't have a magic solution as I have trouble with myself. I am now 60 years old I have gone through menopause so that was a big help. I would like to share that you may not be breathing good so that can be a factor too.
