ok,I am confused.
I began having grand mal seizurs since i was an infant,
Continued on and off until I was 17.
At 18, rmoved a benign brain tumor the size of a grapefruit from the protctive covering of the brain.
Had another seizure at 21.
didnt have another until I was 34.
continud to have them one about every 6 months.
This Saturday I was sitting outside....began seeing bright silver lights.
Felt the aura....My husband got me to my feet...As soon as I saw his Blu shirt I knw I was saf, I lost consiousness. Lasted about 15 sc. He said I jumped up as though I could walk, then I again lost coniousnss, lost control of my bladder, and was nothing but dead weight. carrid m into the house where i was so clammy, breathing was eratic.
I also hav crohns disase and thyroid cancer.
Which I do not think contributed to the seizures.
I am currently on 800 mgs tegretol, 1000 mg keppra.
I have gon from no sizurs for years to 2 in on day errrggggg
Now I just feel out of it, like it can com on at any time.
They also wnt from me jrking (grand mal) to just loosing consiousnss and control of my bladder.
I also have that chewing gum typ symptoms with my lips.
My doctors do no know why this has come about out of the blue again.
I don't even know what kind of sizures these are.
I always have an aura, but this time it didnt giv me the time I normally have to gt "safe"
Any comments would b apprciated.
