      Hey, I have epilepsy although I've just come off of my meds as I've been seizure free for x amount of years. I live/d with absence seizures and tonic clonic seizures. I also forget the medical names. 💜

      I have sleep epilepsy I've forgotten the medical name, but I've also had 'brain spasms'? Where I'm in public places and can only physically say one word or sometimes the correct number of words but as if I'd pulled each one from a blended dictionary, never seen a doctor for it can anyone relate?

      i've had a bunch of different seizures throughout my life (gelastic, complex or simple partial, auras) i've had pretty much all of them growing up so i wasn't diagnosed with any kind of seizures. it's too many to diagnose lol

      I have mine in my sleep or few seconds after I wake up. They don't know why.

      Injury caused epilepsy I struggle with partial, complex and absent. I also have non epileptic seizures, and with a ton of testing ruled that I have both not one or the other. Worst part is not knowing for 5 years that I was having that issue I could have managed so much better just knowing.

      Started with Grand Mals my Junior year of high school. You can say the last 2 years kinda sucked. Had a partial right temporal lobectomy in 2006 which reduced me to absence seizures. From there it's just been hopping one drug to another to take me down to focal awares... 20 years worth of seizures always truly wants to make you ask what God's job was for you here...

      I had my first when I was 16 years old. Since then I’m under tegretol and I’m without any seizures for the past 1.5 years. My neurologist offered that if I reach 2 years of no seizure I might stop the meds and see how it goes

      Hey! I am diagnosed with complex partial seizures epilepsy. I am treated with tegretol and luckily, I did not suffer from any seizures for the past two years now. How long have you been dealing with epilepsy and what has your journey looked like?
