About Me: Female, 61, El Paso, TX, member since May 2008

But with my GP’s support I am trying not to give up hope. I hope this community can help.
Update: After all the test I was dx'd with Temporal Lobe Epilepsy. Been on my medication for a while and it has really helped.

Wow! A great neurologist! I've heard they exist..:o) I'm so glad you found one, with good assistants, too! I guess I can't come to Texas to see yours, but I'm sure I'll find a good one someday. I'm so happy for you, to have someone helping you find answers, and to believe in you; good stuff!
