Is anyone on Lexapro? How did it go? any side effects I should look out for? I'm on it for my seizures as I have NES (Non-Epileptic Seizures) and it works apparently. I also have depression so it's basically killing two birds with one stone. Any feedback would be lovely.
Ive had two aura episodes in the past month or so and prior to the first one I never had auras before. The symptoms make me think they're focal seizures because they're only effecting one side of my body. My right eye will have obscured vision that's almost like vibrating and my left is completely normal. my doctor's are saying migraine but the auras only last 30-60 second or so and then after I'm so exhausted I can't stay awake and sleep for 2-3 hours after the episode. the first episode presented with confusion, high hr, extreme anxiety, and extreme exhaustion plus some mild memory loss following the episode. The second episode was only the aura, the extreme exhaustion after, and some mild memory loss. My doctor's are trying to say migraine but I really feel it's not and I'm curious if anyone has focal seizures that present similarly. every migraine aura description/picture looks nothing like the visual disturbances I've had. thanks 🙂
So, I had a weird thing happen. I was coming out of a seizure and started talking. I thought I was talking normally but apparently I was stopping and clicking my lips/tongue and then starting a sentence again. Is this normal for a seizure? I'm just a bit concerned is all. I recorded a video for TikTok (for a different reason), that's why I knew I was talking funny. I can easily share it if I didn't explain well enough.
Hello everyone, hope you are all okay. Im a 21 year old female from UK Diagnosed with FND. I suffer with seizures everyday and have had this since i was 13, along with other health complications. Would love to chat with anyone who can relate and support eachother with. 😊
Hey everyone! So I'm pretty new here, I was just wondering if anyone else with seizures also found florescent lights as bad as I do? I also have a couple of follow up questions, first: do blue light glasses actually work to help ease the intensity of the lights? Secondly: I work for a large company as a sales assistant, all the lights were very recently changed to florescent and it's a big store, so there's a lot of lights. Is it reasonable to ask for them to be changed back? Because now I'm having quite a few seizures at work but obviously I don't know how realistic it is to ask for the lights to be changed. Thank you for reading! I hope you all have a good day/night!
so it looks like i probably have a seizure disorder! while i wait to see an epileptologist, does anyone have some advice? seizures are not fun! and i don’t want them to occur in class haha.
