My almost 18 year old daughter has had 5 seizures total since age 14. I am trying to find a common link. MRI and EEG were both negative. 3 out of 5 times after a seizure, one absence and two tonic-clonic, she was violently ill. vomited everything and then bial. Also really bad headaches afterward and twice before. Is this common?View Thread
Dear Angie, Thank you for all your helpful info too. Nice to know we are not alone. will get some questions from my daughter for you and ask away. I think part of this could be stress related, I just don't know at this point.
Dear Candi, Thank you so much for all of the helpful info. I could not get her in to see a new neurologist until Sept. She is currently not on any anti-seizure meds, however she is on Seroquel and celexa for other issues. She follows with a psychiatrist for that.
Will certainly take advantage of your generous offer for more questions and will let you know what happens at neuro when we go.
