Hi there i am now 16, and i have had petit mal epilepsy for 11 nearly 12 years. i find it quite hard to cope with especially the fact i wont be able to start driving in 4 months and many of my friends will.
I dont really know how and why i got epilepsy but i have heard that if you have a high IQ it is more likely to affect you. is that true?
Also if i want to try alternative treatments such as omega 3 tablets should i still take the medication i am on. I am currently taking Eplim and Ethosuximide which equals out as 7 tablets twice a day. so i was hoping to try and come off it because it is not working.
Does anybody no any other forms of treatment that help such as acupuncture and if they do which are better for petit mal? please write back asap im getting desperate
