Since getting epilepsy the 2nd time I have only had 4 granmals, I took 3 granmals when my epilepsy was 1st rediagnosed - 2 at home & 1 in hospital. I don't remember alot about
the day I got my epilpesy back. The only other time I took a grandmal was 3 years ago when I took a granmal at work - the neurologist was trying me on new meds at the time & was taking me of one med and putting me on another med.
I don't think I slur my speech when I take a turn, I think I usualy forget what I'm going to say or say a totaly different thing.
A couple of months after being rediagnosed with the epilepsy I was on the phone to a friend when I started taking a funny turn, I went to
open my mouth but it was like nothing would come out. That was pretty scary, that was probably the only time I had real problems with my actual speech.
If I take a turn in fornt of someone who knows about
my epilepsy I usualy ask the person how I was or what I did because I keep a diary of all my turns & what I can remember about
them so when I go see my neurologist I can give him the details.
