"Simela (again) - I'm so sorry! I didn't realize that your son is having seizures. I probably would have worded my posts a little differently if I knew that the problem was so personal to your family. My apologies if you had stated that earlier and I missed it. How is your son doing now? Have you tried either the nicotine patches or the CBD-enriched oil? My best wishes go out to you and your family!"
No reason to appologize, in my case I have to be careful because I don't really need it. I am here for my son. Anyway, he got bit by a tick in 2013, got 1 mo of doxy, because he got the rash, and then in 2014 he started to have seizures but also all kinds of symptoms. He started abx mid december for a sinus infection (which didn't really go away still) and since then he's been seizure free, which leads me to believe his seizures are triggered by something, either lyme or co-infections. He is allergic to a few things so I won't try anything for him unless I am sure it won't possibly hurt him since I don't know what the cause of his seizure really are. But, really, I hope it works for you!
My son needs abx, that's what makes his seizures go away! He was getting them pretty much every 2 weeks. A couple of times he got 2 on the same night. He doesn't remember them at all. Last 2 were very bad, he stopped breathing and was gasping for air for 1.5 minutes and 2 minutes. He woke everyone up, that's how much noise he was making with his gasping, but he could not wake up himself. Whatever is cured by abx, that is the cause of his seizures. Kind of a long list! He is 10 and his seizures just started sept 2014. memory problems, numbness, pain, pain and more pain, migrains, sensitivity to light, about all of them on the long list except 4. Seizures don't cause all this, not seizures that you get 2 weeks apart anyway. There is too much of a pattern to believe there isn't an infection involved because the abx resolved much of his pain, too. He is at least 50% better but still has some bad days. So there, that's a summary of the story! we went to the ER 3 times within 2 months. He's been seizure free for 1.5 months :)
