Hi everyone,
It's been a couple months since I posted what happened to me in June.  That whole Lamictal allergy nightmare I had!
Well, it's been 2 1/2 months since that happened, and you guys, I haven't had a seizure since June 12!  I was having 2 to 3 a day before that allergic reaction happened.  Now, I have had nothing! I'm still on my old medication.  The one that stopped working.  I've been able to taper down on it too, and I'm still not having any seizures!
Is this common? Do some of these severe reactions, high fevers, rashes, etc, cause seizures to stop occuring in some people?  Anyone ever hear of this?  My neurologist is completely stumped! We both attribute this to some glorious divine healing!  Needless to say, after 5 years of dealing with my simple partials, to all of a sudden not having any, has been incredible!  I feel so much better! 
Everything else is almost back to normal too.  My liver in fact, is better now than before the reaction happened too.  So that's another mystery! 
I just wanted to update you and ask that question!  It's a miracle!
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me.  I have learned in whatever state I am in, to be content.  Phillipians 4:11-13

I had wondered about you.  It does sound like a miracle.  I don't have any feed back for you, but I am so happy for you.  Please keep us posted.

Hi Ginny
This is great news!!! I cant say I have heard of it before so if you get an explanation, please share it with us! As for your liver, I can understand that one. Its a bit like your liver having a spring clean. While its cleaning your dont feel so good, but after its great. It might have jumped on the opportunity while it was sorting out the Lamictal.
Congrats and Keep us Posted!
