my daughter is 3 yrs old and has been diagnosed with intractable epilepsy. There has not been much luck with medication. She has been on Lamictal, Trileptal and is currently on Topamax. All of the meds have messed with her emotions and temperment. The newest symptom for her is counghing severe at night and snoring. She is not noticing any of this, although she wakes not knowing what is happening. I am not sure if any of this is related to her 'epilepsy' or not. That is why I am here, asking for your input. All of Kelseys neurlogical test have came back perfect. She has had and EEG, MRI, Black Light spot testing, Strob Light test and blood work. All of this is newer to me although we have been fightng the seizures for 14 months. I am praying that her neroligist can find the right meds for her. I am so concerend about her and sleeping at night that I have brought insomnia on for myself. There is some questions that always run through my mind. I moved into my mothers trailer 15 months ago and with in one month kelsey began to have seizures. Kelsey never had seizures prior to this. The other thing is.. Kelsey only has seizures here at home, not anywhere else. Is there a reason for this? Someone please help me ;)
