I used to have grand mal seizures and in the last few years, I have been having twitching in my face (cheeks) and my eyes, and feel like my eyes are moving back and forth, as well as breathing deeply. These occur only in
my sleep. I have not had aspartame since a grand mal seizure in
1985 and I have had an MRI, MRA, video EEG monitoring, a blood workup, and everything is normal. I took Tegretol for a year and was fine, but had to come off of it due to it exacerbating my lupus condition.
