Finally, last Friday, my new primary-care doctor (an Internal Medicine specialist) got the results of an EEG, which she said showed some kind of seizure
activity in the left temporal lobe. She called in a prescription for Valproic Acid. I have taken six doses so far (250 mg each). This medicine makes me miserable with heartburn, no matter if I take it with food or not, and I have not seen any relief from the original problem. In fact, it may actually be a little worse.
