I've had petit mal seizures since before I was a teen and officially found out it was epilepsy when I was 14. I also found out that the type of epilepsy I have can progressively get worse and I've noticed that happening within the last 2-3 years. I realized frequent twitching in my extremities and even my jaw. Now I take Clonazepan for those types of seizures as well as my Depakote ER. I've dealt w/the epilepsy pretty well throughout my life, I am now 29. I did have a grand mal seizure in 2000 when I was VERY sick w/the flu and taking various otc meds. Now that I've read the many articles on decongestants and antihistamines I avoid them at all cost. I'm so happy I found this website where I can talk w/others that have epilepsy. It can sometimes be very lonely without anyone to talk to about
various things in your life affected by this disease. I look forward to learning so much more about
this and making some great friends.
