Does anyone else experience this? I don't know what's going on. Today, I was driving and I saw the "One Way" sign. I wanted to go left, but it in no way inconvenienced me in the slightest, other than it changed my plan. When I got to the stop sign I almost turned left (NOT the correct direction, there was also a concrete median). I think if I hadn't sat there due to heavy traffic, I would have made that left turn. I definitely could have gotten myself or others killed, that's how confident(?) I was in making the left turn, but I fully recognized the One Way sign and that I was going to have to make a right before I had gotten there. This isn't the first time something like this has happened to me. Yesterday, I almost missed my friend's street when I was taking her home. She told me we were at the turn, and I told her we weren't, I was very insistent (I had a "valid" argument, but it's fluff for now), we were in fact at the street and I had to move over into the turning lane later than one should have. "Small" things like this are starting to happen more and more. The first time something like this ever happened was in 2021 and nothing like it has ever happened until earlier this year but it's becoming more frequent. Does this happen to anyone else? Why? What is it?
Do you go through depression and dizzy spells
What should I ask my new neurologist? My old pediatric neurologist retired so I'm seeing an adult(?) one. What should I ask her? The only current questions I have are pertaining to possibly drinking and/or smoking with my meds, and discussing birth control. Any other advice? I had seen my last neurologist for about 3 years, and he was very informative but sometimes appointments felt rushed.
So all my life I have had health issues. we thought we figured it out when they find the brain tumor and removed it but now I get these dizzy spells and things fade for a little bit and myblood pressure is dramatically different from my left to right, I am also having a spiked heartrate while resting rarely getting lower than 90bpm. I am starting to wonder if it's all in my head or I am not somehow faking all this..
I got in a car crash and I have epilepsy any advice
what is the best way to deal with depression? Why is it so bad lately? How can I help it? is it worse for people living with epilepsy?
Hii it’s blue, I not long had a seizure. Now I’m really aware of my body and the way it moves. It’s so annoying. Also, does anyone else suffer with short term memory loss post seizure? Feels like I’m dory when I say that. 😂 It’s a nightmare to tackle. Anyone got any advice? The advice is needed and reassurance would be so lovely to have! Thanksss x ☺️💖
Hellooo! I just have a question for people with epilepsy, I’ve had it for awhile now and I’ve never named it as a disability but now I’m wondering if I should because it effects everything in my life , what do you think?
I’ve just noticed that my seizure detection app is now premium 🙁 I was wondering why it hadn’t detected my seizure today and went in to find out it’s £149 a year to get alerts now. I use SeizAlarm and want to know if it’s worth it? I haven’t needed it before and this was the first time I did. Is there another app that’s just as good/ cheaper that works for you? Looking for linking to Apple Watch
does anyone know what happens at a neurologist appointment? i’ve got an appointment tomorrow but i just don’t know what to expect
random question: what is one thing you would change about your life/epilepsy you could?
does anyone know what happens at an neurologist appointment? i had them a lot when i was younger but i can’t remember them i’m 17 now i’m from the uk as well
If anyone has generalized epilepsy and medicine what are you on? My seizures are not improving at all and are generalized tonic clonic (grand mal) every time. I want to change medicines but have tried 6 (not at one time) with no luck. I would like ideas to ask about. Side effects that you experience would be helpful too, to determine if it could be worth it for me.
Hello! I am new here and just wanted to see what it was all about. I have pretty severe frontal lobe epilepsy that gives me seizures almost every month.
So I have this weird thing that happens when I see flashing lights where I get like this unsettling feeling in my head and I get pressure and just feel like my eyes feel strange I don’t really know how to describe it but I just have to block it out or I feel like total crap. I don’t know what epilepsy would feel like of course so not sure if it’s something related along those lines or maybe a migraine with sensitivity to light? I do get headaches afterward. Have any of you had something like this or maybe be able to help me know what to do next? It’s been happening for like a decade now it hasn’t gotten worse over the years but just since I was a teen has been an issue so I try to avoid flashing lights.
I have mini-seizures where I don’t loose consciousness but I do stare off and loose feeling in my limbs. I work with computers a lot and don’t realize it happens sometimes it just happens. My family might think I’m watching tv but I can’t move. I call it being confused where I just need a min. Any advice for when this happens at work
For as long as I can remember, I have episodes where my brain gets stuck on words, conversation, or actions that didnt make sense to me. Silently I would replay them over and over, trying to make sense of them. During these episodes, everything is blurry, i can see shapes and colors, but it seems to be more like a movie, not cannot hear anything. My family would tell me I would stand/sit there with a blank look an my face. Has anyone ever experienced this? Could these have been seuzures?
How long have you had Epilepsy? How do you manage it? How does it affect your day to day life?
