I've already had 5 seizures within the past year! The first one was left unnoticed because I didn't know it was a seizure. The 2 that I had in February were noticed by my sisters, so they sent me to the hospital. Then I had one in the end of March. The most recent one occured the other day. I had gone a couple of days without Tegretol, and experienced a seizure.
 
Also, just wondering-do any of you guys get red spots on your face after seizures? It always happens to me, but I heard that this isn't a common effect of seizures.
 
In addition, do you guys have any brain abnormalities which would pinpoint to your seizures? I had an MRI done a while ago, and they found a benign tumor in my brain. I also suffer from social anxiety, I've had it all my life. My guess is that the tumor has been there my whole life, and that could be the reason for my social anxiety, but it is also a developmental tumor that has gotten larger to the point where it would cause seizures.

sparkations,

IMOO ~ I have not received any brain damage from the seizures BUT brain damage and short term memory loss due to long term use of the meds.
