Hello Everyone.  Well, I go to my new Neuro today and I am very nervous.  Since I moved to this area, I have been going to the "best" Neuro Dr's around.  The problem was, I always saw a resident and the Dr. came in for the last 10 sec.  After my grand mal seizure 2 wks ago I tried calling to get an appt. and they couldn't get me in for 6 wks.  This is why I am now on my way to a new Neuro.  Mind you, I have only had 4 seizures (32 yrs old), the last one being a grand mal so I felt that I should be seen asap. 
 
Anyway, I guess I'm nervous of what he is going to tell me.  I'm especially concerned about driving.  I have a list of questions, hopefully I thought of everything.

about driving...Our son (25 yrs old) has had epilepsy since he was 9, but has had only a few grand mal seizures. (mostly the kind called statis elipticus, or something like that) Anyway, last fall he moved to Ft. Wayne and hadn't yet gotten a new neurologist. Then he had a grand mal seizure last December and found out when he finally got to a neurologist that in Indiana it's illegal to drive for 3 monthes after a seizure. The neurologist said that she wouldn't turn Aaron in, but patients with epilepsy are supposed to be aware of this law. If he had gotten pulled over by a cop for any reason, and it had been found that he was driving after a seizure, he could have lost his driving privileges even longer.
