I'm new to the site. I am a 31 year old woman, I live in the Los Angeles/Long Beach area. I am getting my Masters Degree in Social Work right now and am in my last year. I also was diagnosed with Myoclonic Epilepsy when I was about 16. I had a Gran Mal seizure and had about 4 smaller ones around that time. I have been on meds ever since and haven't had any major problems. I take Topamax now that I usually get from family doctors, clinics, etc since I don't have insurance anymore. However, for my current internship at the University I attend they are asking for me to get checked out by a Neurologist to possibly get hired there, per the Stipend I receive. They are saying it could be a liability for me to transport clients, etc in the future if something "were to happen"... assuming they mean I have a seizure.
does anyone know of any resources to see a Neurologist? is it legal for them to base my employment on this?
