Last night one of my pills stuck in the compartment.  I use one of those things with the days of the week and a 25mg pill of Lamictal stuck in it.  I didn't notice until this morning so I ended up skipping it.  It's not much but I'm senstive to medicine so the small dose is enough to make a difference.
I was just on the phone and my jaw clenched up.  I've had this happen before and it stopped happening when my seizures got more controlled so I know it's related.  It's like I will be talking and my jaw will clench and my tongue will stick to the top of my mouth.  Has anyone had this an does anyone know what it is or what it's called?
It's mild tonight and I'm alone so not too upset.  But I'd still like to know.  I'm more shakey than normal since I missed 25mg of Lamictal.  Fortunately it was the 25mg that stuck in the container and not the 100mg pill.

Hi Uhura, My Jaw and tounge do the same thing right before I go into a full blown Grand Mal Seizure. As long as I take my meds it doesn't happen. Hope this helps.
