Hi, I posted in late November recounting my experience and having been recently diagnosed then "undiagnosed" then diagnosed again. briefly, i began having these very quick and sudden episodes of fluttering eyes, slurred speech and tongue biting. i went to see a group of neurologists. an mri was done which was normal. a sleep deprived eeg which was also normal (according to one of the drs but spikes and waves of activity according to the other dr.) so i was clinically diagnosed with possible simple partial seizures and put on carbatrol. i could barely tolerate it and after 2 weeks returned to the neuro (who opined that the waves and spikes were drowsiness) who was told me that my eeg was normal and that i should go off the medication and wait and see. i went back to the original neuro who diagnosed me and he stressed that i should go back on the meds and not take the chance of a possible grand mal. i have now been on carbatrol for almost 2 months. i have had a few breakthrough seizures and continue with intermittent slurred speech and tongue biting. i took some advice from various posters on this site and went to the cleveland clinic yesterday (which specializes in seizure disorders and epilepsy) for a second opinion. After hearing my symptoms, the diagnosis, undiagnosis and then diagnosis again, this epitilelogist(sp?) said that he is not comfortable with my diagnosis of seizure disorder not so much because of what i am telling him but because of what i am not telling him (i guess i do not have some of the tell-tale symptoms) and i am having a 24 hour eeg starting today. he is leaving me on the meds, however, suspects that what i am suffering from is severe migranes. i am so confused... can anyone help - any ideas? suggestions? questions i might ask? i am not a doctor nor have any experience in this other than what i have gone through for the past 3 months and therefore am very concerned that 3 doctors have all said 3 different things.....i appreciate any imput.
