Been on Lamictal for 6 months and believed to have been experiencing Absense seizures. After doing some research I am sure this has been going on long before my diagnosis in May 2010.
Through School I was critisized for my lack of concentration and 'being off in my own world', daydreaming and teased for staring at kids in high school.
I've started the
Keppra last Tuesday and the side effects from that are kicking in ... by
11am I'm so tired I could go to sleep, I feel hung over when I get up
in the morning. But between 7 and 1030 am i'm fine, i feel good. After
lunch I'm ok but then by 3pm i'm buggered again.Is there something I can do or take to give me more energy?
What is the medication going to do to me and or my stomach inthe long term ?
I get aggressive and angry about stupid little things. So angry sometimes that I cant even think. I'm seriously stressed out. So I'm going to try not worrying about the whole epilepsy thing, take my meds and let the rest follow... i hope.
today I was driving through the city - in the passenger seat - my
boyfriend was driving. Coming up to a major intersection, I see the
cars are banked up ahead but we make it accross, I see a girl at a bus
stop across the street and a car beside us. Next thing its like I snap
out of a "absence seizure" I think and I look ahead and we are coming up
to the same intersection again and the traffic ahead is banked up, its
like mega de ja vu - OR I mistook the previous intersection for the
major one we had come up to. This really weirded me out.
I'm going to see how the Keppra goes and ask the Neuro about this one mid December.
I hate that I forget everything, I'll be mid sentence during a conversation and completely forget what I'm talking about ...
Any comments will be much appreciated. thanks.
