Jul 12, 2018 · What to do when you've tried everything? in Epilepsy & Seizures

You might need a new neurologist. There are many different meds out there. I would stop calling them grand mal because it means the biggest sickness in French. The brain has many different areas in it and each part handles something different. I hope you're documenting what someone tells you happened duration and effects Did any of your tests show where the seizures were coming from? I know what you mean about driving I absolutely hate it that I have to rely on someone to take me somewhere. My over 3000 seizures came from a lesion on the left temporal lobe b/c my mom had a fever when she was pregnant with me. The left temporal lobe's lesion caused me to have complex partial seizures. My short term memory reasoning sequencing and right now I'm having problems with speech-aphasia or mine is anomia words are on the tip of my tongue. I'm going to see a speech pathologist in Aug.

I've had to do all of the above. I've been married for 20 1/2 yrs and have a little boy who's almost 5. God does work in mysterious ways so let him take the wheel

You need a new neurologist if he just says your busy is the reason you're having your problems. I have been given 3 words to remember by drs. I categorize, repeat in my mind or alphabetize. A pear is something you eat, tulip's a flower, and courage is a feeling. The speech pathologist wanted me to remember rose, sweater, and hamburger. I'm having anomia where the word is on the tip of my tongue and I have to use synonyms. I had a concussion at age 2 hitting my head on a tv, but I was told from an MRI that I had a lesion on left temporal lobe that formed b/c my mom had a fever during the pregnancy. I'm glad he's ordering an MRI. My advice is to let Jesus take the wheel
