I was seen by a neurologist and diagnosed with a seizure disorder after years of being misdiagnosed with panic attacks.
I'm taking Lamictal for the seizures and it has been working. It took a while to find the right dosage but we did. I feel a lot better now.
Did u see your dr yet? Let me know what happens.View Thread

I was misdiagnosed for 10 years. I was always told these symptoms were panic attacks, until I found the right dr. Seeing the neurologist had no affect on my job or any other part of my life. For me, the emotional symptoms are so intense, I couldn't imagine not seeking treatment. The neuro prescribed Lamictal, one of the most effective and popular drugs used to treat seizures. As the dosage increases the severity of the symptoms decrease. They have not completely stopped as of yet. As far as preventing them, you probably wont have them as often if you get a good night sleep, keep your stress levels low and avoid alcohol. I am glad you posted. I have always felt a bit alone with such strange symptoms. Its hard for others to understand what it is like.

Spiderslap, have you been to a neurologist?? I have since been diagnosed with simples seizures. You have the classic symptoms. I am glad you can relate to the emotional part of it. I can function through it as well but it really hurts. Can you tell me more about that symptom?View Thread
I know EXACTLY what you are talking about. No other symptoms of depression, just a sudden and intense emotional pain that makes you want to jump out of your body. My dr thinks it is a form of seizures. I am being evaluated now. Please tell me if you have an update. Are you bein treated? How are you?View Thread
