Have had neurological disorders since my 18th birthday to the present time. Three head injuries in the military. Each requiring number of stitches to close. Nervess break-down at 18 and half years old. Diagnosed with with Generalized Anxiety Neurosis in 1972. Heard in
[More]juries 1975, 1977, and 1981, In 1986 was diagnosed with a siezure disorder after years of struggle with military doctors. Suffered 14 years at the hand of US military doctors without treatment. Current time, I am house-bound and without treatments.
I know exactly what you mean. I have idiopathic seizures but in reality it' s a number of key factors but they happen so silmaltaniously I cant destinquish what's occuring or why, all i can sense is the aura that somthing bad is happening around me and the feeling of vertigo that seems to accomanpy it for me. I end up waking confused and one heck of a spacecadet.
Thanks again for writing. Fortunately, I'm aware of and have lived with all those things; since I studied at Stanford's Doctors Library in my teens to learn all the factors of living with epilepsy. The situation confronting me now relates to excess fatigue and low blood pressure since my neurologist put me on a fluid restricted diet due to low sodium, thought to be caused by Trileptal.
I didn't want to call the doctor unless I have too, so I was seeking this information to know if the situation warranted calling.
