I had my first seizure a few months ago after a high dose of lidocaine .. Of course the doctor states I have a seizure disorder but he is just covering his butt.
As far as "misdiagnosed" take it from one that understands that all too well, happens a gazillion times a minute ( like that word) doctors are not gods, many factors have to come into play to diagnose any disorder, and yes the daludid could be controlling them but I highly doubt it.
I would see a neurologist to confirm the diagnosis.
If it helps, I've been on every pain med imaginable all the way up to fentanyl..
Gabapentin/neurontin it is actually a anti-seizure medicine that they discovered is great pain-medication primarily with pain that has to do with nerve pain/damage/fibro etc etc..
I have suggested it to 2 people and ,like me ,it changed their lives
The best part it is not a narcotic ..
Now I may get this deleted because I can not push drugs on another because I am not a doctor but worth an inquiry with a pain doctor or neurologist.
