I had my first seizure in December 2001, i had temporal lobe epilepsy and i was diagnozed for 8 years. I am now 16 years old, i have had a tough time since my doctor proclaimed i was cured... On one side i seem to be doing worse in my studies and i have gotten sudden 'ticks'. My limbs have spontaneous unconsious small movements particularly close to the elbows and knees. I have been sleeping less and i tried my first beer some days ago, but this has been goiung on about two weeks before i had alcohol for the first time. If anybody has had something similar or has any sort of odeas as to wat this might, please leave a suitable comment
