Just Diagnosed with Epilepsy

Just diagnosed with epilepsy on 12/12/12 I been smelling thing that other ppl can smell for about a year..Had eeg was abnormal and family doc sent me to a specialist. They said smell gets worse if bot treated which it did and he said I do have epilepsy..On Lamictal XR now tho I just have olfactory smell does that mean I will have a regular seizure sometime in my life besides the olfactory smell?? Or just the smell.?  I have a lot of jerking with my left side like my left leg does that have anything to do with the seizure? Any information would be helpful Thanks

I'm glad that you finally figured out what was wrong.  I think what you have in your legs sounds like a form of epilepsy, but as I am not a doctor I can't tell you for sure. I can tell you though that if your EEG is abnormal you probably do have it. Please come back and keep us updated.

For what it's worth, I went through a time when I smelled beautiful-smelling flowers, wonderful coffee, and terrific buttered popcorn. Now, I wasn't making any of those foods, and I looked everywhere for the flowers, but found them to be nonexistent...until I discussed the situation with my neuo-doc at the time, and he informed me that they were a sezure equivalent. I guess they did exist, in a way...or at least, I was left wishing they did! Hope this helps...he also said I was lucky, since most folks don't have such pleasant equivalents, necessarily. May all your seizure equivalents be happy ones!--Catsissie
