Avatar m tn Make a list of any new foods, medications, vaccines, or even home that you may have moved into. It could be triggered by an alergy that you don't know about. NO BATHS water is a real danger if your seizures last that long.
1653487 tn?1303527762 70% of people are able to obtain seizure control via medications alone, the medications are not exactly easy to deal with, i.e. unpleasant side effects. Known, in the epilepsy community, as "necessary poisons." :) But they help many. Some of the newer meds have fewer side effects, and they do have XR vsersions, which are easier to take (vs. 3-4 times a day!) Well, good luck to you--I'll keep my fingers crossed!
Avatar f tn It has been two days since his last seizure but he still hasn't fully recovered, he doesn't know his commands, the people in the house ( including me ), or the other dogs and cats in the house. I want to know if he will even recover from this or if there is something I can do to help. He keeps pacing and whining, even in the middle of the night. Should I bring him in again? Could there be something more serious going on?
Avatar f tn Yes, my husband uses it for bipolar and for antidepressant/mood stability, but also for seizure depression as well. Valproic acid is used alone or with other medications to treat certain types of seizure I know you are worried and afraid for your daughter. I have no advice about what to do, just wanted you to know I am hoping all goes well and I am so sorry about it all.
Avatar n tn // I'm not a medical professional, just the parent of a kid with diabetes, and I don't know all the specific of your son's case, so I'm resisting saying exactly what happened to him. But that site does describe the condition pretty well. Again, I'm very sorry for your loss.

Avatar m tn Just recently I have been having ringing and then ultra sensitive hearing then my occular migraines have started again, I work full time as a nurse I cannot take the pain medications. My PCP suggested that I have my ears cleaned out they look fine. I have never heard of this condition thankyou for bloging. I have a consult with a nuerologist is three weeks I am trying to run weekly and i cannot find info about things to not do.
199882 tn?1310188142 I don't usually discuss the types of medications I take because it's so easy for others to judge us without spending time in our shoes.. My pain has gotten a lot worse over the last few months and I was wondering if I should ask my doctor to increase them or maybe try something else? I've been on the same dosage for about 2 years now... I take: Methadone 10mg 6 x per day, Cymbalta 60mg 1 x per day, Baclofen 10mg 6 x per day, Amitiza 8MCG 2 x per day, and Oxycodone 30mg up to 8 x per day.
215234 tn?1305146561 I have not met one vet who has taken any type of seizure lightly. That is new for me; but then again I don't live in the UK :-) Good Luck and let us know if you have any more questions.
1303966 tn?1296743610 I'm currently not on any medications other than natural supplements. I was on Keppra, but it changed my personality drastically. Has anyone decided to take medications instead of surgery? What I'm trying to say is to control the symptoms rather than opt for such a drastic measure such as surgery. I'm one of those people who do not like to take medications because of the side effects and what the meds may do to my health down the road.
Avatar n tn In a case report of a 44-year old woman with hemiplegic migraines, Botulinum toxin type A was effective in treating the symptoms of her condition, and this led to her not taking any other of her previous medications such as triptans or other prophylactic agents. You can probably try e-mailing the author of that case report for further information. His details are as follows: Dr.
Avatar n tn Given the 'spells' that you describe, I would suggest an EEG (electroencephalogram-'brain wave test') to evaluate for possible seizure activity. I would also suggest a somatosensory evoked potential (SSEP) to evaluate the 'wiring' in your cervical spine, to see if any signal are getting lost/disturbed by that cervical disc. I would also suggest that you take your case to an academic neurology department to have some 'fresh eyes' look at all the data that has been collected thus far.
Avatar f tn This is a place for new members to introduce themselves and post their stories as to how it all began for you, the symptoms you experience, any tests that you have had, any findings or theories you have or anything else you want to share.
Avatar f tn I don't have great insurance either, I'm disabled and on Medicare, so they already treat me like a leper when I try to make a new doctors appointment somewhere..... I'm seriously having panic attacks over year has been HORRIBLE already!
Avatar m tn I love how everybody but the doctors has an idea of what is going on. Depression has never been largely one of my problems. I think I can now officially add it to the long list of other symptoms that nobody seems able to diagnose. So I guess I'm here looking for some direction and support. I'm almost 32 years old and I've had varying symptoms for awhile.
Avatar n tn Sternal Division (left): Head pain, "sinus" pain, visual disturbances, “sore throat,” difficulty swallowing, dry cough. Clavicular Division (right): Autonomic and proprioceptive disturbances; frontal "sinus" headache, ear pain, nausea, dizziness and car-sickness; reversible tinnitus/deafness.
Avatar m tn I have been told by my endo, GP, and neuro that they will keep a watch on how my organs are taking in all the medications that I am on. I am taking a seizure medication, synthroid, celexa, zanaflex, and vit. D. I wish I knew how to answer your question. it is definately frustrating !!!!!!
Avatar m tn He determined that it isn't my scoliosis and wanted me to get a 2nd opinion from a new neurologist. Because he was thinking maybe since they made a little more room in my skull due to my over sized cerebellum my brain may of jiggled a little or something when I fell thus the trauma of falling has triggered new Chiari symptoms.
356518 tn?1322267242 We welcome new members here everyday and alot of times new members will sit back and observe and read awhile before posting. By introducing yourself it helps us members get to know you and also welcome you to our wonderful community we have. We not only support each other with pain issues but with everyday life and how the pain effects it. We have all had days when just need to vent and express out feelings toward dealing with pain and how it effects every single aspect of out lives.
506273 tn?1260142381 I need to make sure my files are brought to the new one as well. Thats really why I'm thinking that I will just wean myself off. I hope you can understand what I am saying. For some reason lately my fingers don't quite type what my brain wants them to. Thank you!
Avatar f tn It was like I was floating and yes my mind was wondering and at times I started to feel sad. I can't lie, I'm scared of being on new or more medications now. I'm scared of things getting worse. I feel like since I got my stomach issues around this time last year it has been one thing after another. I think this is where my anxiety stems from. My health issues. I feel safest when I'm at home and I shouldn't have any reasons to be scared to leave my house.
146298 tn?1258715847 Basically, I think I have MS and then list the reasons. But I really want pain relief, so right off the bat I'm asking for oxycodone and offering to sign a contract and come in once a month to count pills and whatnot. I got that idea from girls my age on the endo forums I'm a member of who'd been unable to get pain meds at first. Isn't it brilliant?! I'm not comfortable with taking opiates every day and didn't think I could treat everyday pain until reading posts here.
544292 tn?1268886268 Howdy Tramadol Warriors! New space New day!
Avatar f tn I have a seizure disorder that has suddenly changed and required changes in medications, I'm switching to a new Neuro and am seeing him in a week. I wondered if my eye problem was medication side affect or something. My optometrist gave me a very thorough exam and found scarring or something in my left retina and referred me to a retinal specialist. She said something like maybe you'll get in there before you see the neuro. My question, could the two problems be related?
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Tramadol Warriors! A new thread. New Day. New chance to take your life back. Welcome ....
Avatar f tn My little boy says his tongue feels weird when he brushes his teeth and he has allergies to too many things to list, so what i'm saying is that on its own doesnt scream MS. If you've sx are new and coincide with the seizure medication or even if this sx was happening before the seizure you need to speak to your dr even if thats only to feel safe and informed. Cheers.......
553516 tn?1255870819 Patients who take these medications (regularly or daily) should undergo monthly laboratory testing for the first three months of therapy and then every three to six months because of the association between these medications and liver disease.
901137 tn?1267629789 I had been sent medical history forms to complete that were similar to ones I have filled out each time I have seen a new medical provided. I provided insurance documentation as well as list of current medications. The exam was performed by a physician’s assistant and with the exception of listening to my heart the time was spent primarily talking. I was then given an EKG with the wires and stuff. From there I was on to get chest spinal cord X-rays.
