My fiance is an Epileptic, he has been since the age of 4. I'm use to the seizures that he has and such but now there is fatigue sometimes dizziness and head aches. Not all the time but it comes on out of the blue and it puts him in bed for a week. He has something related to Virtigo, not sure how to spell it but when it hits he can't have any light in the room, no tv, the room must be cold and he has a hard time keeping food down. The doctors here haven't told him anything or what to do. I've been giving him flluids to keep him hydrated and light foods to try and get something in his system. If anyone out there knows what this is and how to treat it please tell me.View Thread
That's great.....my fiance has been on Keppra for a few years and he hasn't gained weight, his s/e with the medical cocktail they have him on is memory loss. His seizures have lessened since his last dosage change. But if your hubby only has to worry about weight gain, he's doing good, there is a host of s/e's he could haveView Thread
