What is your question?

Fri, Nov 22 10:32pm · Breakthrough seizures after 16 yrs in Epilepsy & Seizures

I had a breakthrough grand mal seizure on the 11th after being free of grand mals for 16 yrs. I've had absence seizures over the past 16 yrs every once in a while, maybe 1 per month at the most. After the grand mal on the 11th, I have been having 20 or more absence seizures everyday! I am so scared! Afraid that I will have another grand mal. I can't get to a neurologist until the end of December. They increased my dose but it hasn't helped the absence seizures. They gave me lorazepam to take if the absence seizure is too bad. I'm home alone all day and I'm so scared that something will happen to me while they're gone. Sorry for the long post, I just don't know who to talk to. My family doesn't really take it as seriously as they should. Thanks for listening 💜
