Hi, I'm new to this website but I'm hoping someone out there can help me out? Please?
I've had epilepsy for around 9 years now but just in this past half of the year i noticed some strange twitching. Well first I'll inform ya of my medications that I'm currently on.
- Trileptal (Oxcarbazepine)
- Topamax (Topiramate)
- Depakote (Divalproex)
- Minocycline (For skin care)
- Imitrex (For Migraines when needed)
Now, what I've noticed is that sometimes my right arm will spasm out and my forearm will spazz and jerk forward and I cant stop it. One time it happened while i was speaking and I just started having a hard time breathing and couldnt talk. What's going on?
I have had grand mal and petit mal seizures. And about a year ago, I got the VNS placement. I don't believe that the VNS is causing this but I'm not sure.
