Hi, my name is Helen. About a year ago, I began collapsing randomly. After several tests and multiple diagnoses, my EEG tested positive for epilepsy. My seizures are specifically triggered by stress, and I also have physical triggers such as strobe lights and rapid/irregular heartbeat. Over the past year, my episodes have significantly affected my life. I can strongly say I'm worried about what the future may hold. I'm only 17 years old, and I'm scared. I do not know anyone personally that has my diagnosis, hence my reaching out to this website. I've recently been having memory loss and severe headaches. I am on 200 MG of Lamotrigine a day.
Any advice/support is welcomed and appreciated.
Best wishes xx
