My daughter had her first seizure at the age of 4. She was sound asleep in her bedroom and I luckily had a baby monitor in the bedroom next to hers for my son. I heard a noise and found her staring to one side , teeth clenched and vomiting. It was the scariest day of my life. We called an ambulance and they had to intubate on the way to the hospital. This happened a few times. This pattern continued through every year for the next three years. Her medication seemed to control it but she would have a 'break through' seizure every year. At the age of 7, she started experiencing 'facial twitching and jerking along with severe headaches' She would feel the onset of tingling on the right side of her face followed by jerking of the mouth and eye. This would happen up to 15 times a day. We finally had a video EED done and she was diagnosed with a new form took her to the ER where she was diagnosed with a NEW pattern and type of seizure... new medication. Keppra.. It took a long time ti get her on the right amount but its been working. Her headaches are daily.. she had now learned to just live with them. Sometimes they are so severe she cries and just lays down... but when they are dull an ongoing she takes Motrin and pushes through. I finally convinced her doctor that the headaches have been disrupting her normal lifestyle and he added Vimpat. She has been doing great. No more twitching at all! Headcaches stopped for a year. HOWEVER, now at age 10, she is back with the headaches AND now she explained that she randomly 'gets confused' she can be listening to a friend or a teacher explain something and she just ' loses focus' (quoting her) She explains that she can see there mouth move but she cant hear or understand anything... and then she regains focus but is totally confused about what was said. I've contacted her neurologist who mentioned increasing her Vimpat yet again.. and suggested waiting to see if it occurs again. he explained that if this does occur, he recommends another video EEG to see if it is a new pattern.. possibly 'absence seizures'? Thanks in advance for listening to my story. Here is my question: My husband and I are reluctant to increase her medication again without knowing for certain that this is a new pattern of seizure... what if its the medication? why would we increase her medication without knowing for certain? She takes Keppra and Vimpat and a Vit B6 plus countless amounts of Motrin. Her headaches have been ongoing for over 6 months!! Daily! Every other day she 'confused' for seconds at a time. Here I thought she is reaching adolescence and she might outgrow this??!! Im scared for her, Im confused for her... I would appreciate any thoughts an/or guidance on how to handle this.
