Hi everyone! So I am on here trying to still understand a few things about epilepsy. My boyfriend and I have been together for almost 4 months but known each other for about 7 years. He has epilepsy and about 6 days ago he had 12 seizers in a row the last one being 30 minutes long I call 911 and he was rushed in. When he woke he had no clue where he was and I had to tell him all about the seizers and what happened he remembered nothing!! It was the scarcest thing I have ever seen, I never seen anything like that before I've seen him have a few but never that many or that long and didn't know what to do! Well since this has happened he has been different as far as looks depressed, headache that won't go away short of breath and chest pains since... He has an appointment with his neurologist next week but I feel something is not right... any advise from anyone to try to help him feel a little better about not remembering, he is very grateful for what I did to help him but I feel I need to do more for him?? We are both looking for answers on all of this he's never had this bad of a seizer since his very 1st when he was 11. He is worrying me about his health and not getting any better....View Thread
