Sun, Jul 7 1:37am · Having auras and memory issues, yet test results confusing in Epilepsy & Seizures

Hi, at the moment i am taking extra tegratol, and i am going to see if that helps, if that doesnt help my simple partials, my doctor is convinced the sensations i am feeling may be due to anxiety and will put me on an anxiety medication

I hope it doesnt get to that point,but anything for these auras and partials to go away.

Someone advised me to get a thin cut mri to see the left side more clearly incase there is something..and get surgery if possible instead of taking medication for life.. what are your opinions..i feel if im well controlled im ok but i hate medication too ..

What do you mean expected age related changes..?

Sorry i should have been more clear

Yes i got told by my doctor not to bother with another mri

I guess i am just confused by the results how it says the left side is slowing.. my memory has become horrible and i am on double dose of my tegratol now due to having more auras..

Slowing as in my brain functions slowly or?

I didnt understand my doctor well.. this is the first time something was found with eeg.. i had two before when i was younger..never found anything until now.. also had mri never found anything

I was told to do a new mri
Doctor said dont bother because even if there was something i wont go through with a surgery since epilepsy is considered well controlled

I would like to try this but worried of a risk of a big seizure or increase of auras

I wonder if it can be taken with tegratol in a smaller dose maybe
I will have to ask a neurologist

What is your focal like if u dont mind me asking..im confused om weather to call my problem a focal or an aura..

Anyways what do u mean about the tegratol serum levels…

Somthing interesting happened..my new neurologist seemed not to understand why my blood levels came back as 4.9 on a daily 500mg dose of tegratol
And monthes before that i had a 4.9blood test result on daily 200mg dose

So he made me feel as if i cheated my results and said there is no way a 200 mg dose can result this which made me feel like he doesnt know what hes talking about…
