Hello everyone I am hoping to find some new information or someone else's opinion on what I have going on! A few months ago I went to bed and started having some weird jerking. At first it was my head and then my arm would jerk and then my leg. It lasted for a little while and I prayed till it stopped or I fell asleep. The next day I sat down to relax and felt this weird tingling come over me and I started jerking again! I went into the ER where the Dr called a specialist who said I was having a simple partial seizures. They put me on Keppra and sent me to a neurologist. I had an EEG and a MRI done plus had a CAT Scan at the ER all before seeing the neurologist. When I went to his office he said I was having migraines and he hadn't even looked at my test results yet! He changed my medicine to Topomax and sent me home. A few weeks later I started having severe twitching in my eyes to the point that you could sit and watch and I had to close my eyes! So I have quit taking the medicine because I feel like my dr just brushed me under the rug and didn't explain much to me. I haven't had any severe episodes since the one but I have little things here and there! Can someone please tell me am I just crazy or should I see another dr?View Thread
