This is the first time I have been on this sight,It is 1:25am and I am @ the hospital doing a prolonged sleep deprived eeg. Will be 31 yrs old in 2 mths and I have lived with this since I was 13. I am from a very small town and when ever I seize I hate to say it but I am the talk of the town, I Still feel very embarrassed about this and unsure. I have 4 boy's ages 1yr,4,5 & 12. I really hope I can get some answers while I am here. I have only been able to obtain a license twice in my life I have no income other than my husbands and we struggle (that's putting it mildly) I was just denied my SS and appealing my case with a lawyer. I am taking 1000mg of Keppra 2*day and 150mg Lamectol once a day, I am seizing (what I have always known as Gran ma) about once every 2mths butt I also have alot of little strange things that happen weekly like feelings of confusion being lost not knowing what I am doing or for what purpose, My Meds give me very bad mood swings I have been taking the Keppra for almost 6yrs and the Lamectol for nearly 2mths. I sometimes get a very weird out of body experience best way I could describe it would be like Deja Vu or feeling like I am living in a dream I then get flushed(very hot) dizzy and lightheaded afterwards I am absolutely exhausted. I was just wondering does anyone else feel symptoms like this? Thankfully I have a wonderful husband who is very protective and understanding and comforting.We are trying to learn more about this condition and hopefully someone some day will have some answers for me and my family.View Thread
